As a child growing up in the '40s, Louis Sadler was neglected and abandoned by his parents. After seven different foster homes he is sent to live in an orphanage at the age of six. Sadler was subjected to sexual, physical and spiritual abuse. But he survived, and learned to heal his orphaned spirit, achieving prosperity, along with a happy marriage and loving family. "Orphaned Spirit" is about the courage that it takes to examines one's life and be at the cross currents of personal choices and social pressures. When that self examination reveals the overwhelming sad and unjust or dark and confused aspects of life, Sadler had to find the courage to surrender to his highest spiritual truth and no longer be an 'Orphaned Spirit'.
