Roger Saillant’s Memoir “The Power of Being Seen” Chronicles a Remarkable Journey


In the book “The Power of Being Seen” by Roger Saillant, we witness the emotionally charged memoir of a child caught in the foster care system. His vignette filled story describes his attempts to be like other “normal” children. His attempts based on poor choices often lead to failures but are filled with personal lessons for him. Several important failures are noticed by teachers and some adults who take the time to see him, understand what he is doing, and show him how to make better choices. Those who guide him help him to become a successful and productive adult.

This memoir sheds light on the emotional turmoil Roger endured throughout his formative years, battling feelings of abandonment, helplessness, anger, resentment, even to the point of suicidal ideation. Yet, Roger absorbed ideas from those who saw him that biased him toward feelings of optimism, vision, creativity, courage, and sensitivity. His childhood story is a powerful testament to strength of character and redemption.

“The Power of Being Seen” not only recounts Roger Saillant’s personal journey but also emphasizes the significant impact of being seen and supported by caring individuals during challenging times. Readers can expect a moving narrative that highlights the importance of encouraging and nurturing marginalized children to help them to avoid the pitfalls that often trap unseen children especially in the foster care system. It’s a story of triumph over adversity and the positive influence supportive adults can have on a young life.

As an excerpt from the book suggests, “We all have a need to be seen. There are significant differences in developmental outcomes between children who are seen and those who are unseen.” The book offers valuable lessons about the difference compassionate, caring adults can make in the lives of vulnerable children.

For those seeking a powerful and emotional read, “The Power of Being Seen” is a must-have. Roger Saillant’s storytelling skill combined with his remarkable life journey creates a narrative that will touch your heart and inspire you.

Roger Saillant was a product of the foster care system in the 1950s. In this poignant memoir, he describes his journey with no shortage of emotional baggage, constantly doubting himself and wondering why he is being moved from place to place. Why doesn’t anybody want him? Did he do something wrong? What’s the matter with him? He lives life on a farm where the only thing that matters to his foster father is whether his work gets done – with no regard for the typical nurturing and experiences of a growing child.
