A book to add to your parenting library
As an adoptive mom of two boys, nothing helps me more than being surrounded by others who understand my situation and the struggles that go with it. As Kenneth Camp says, parenting a child who has experienced trauma is not the same as parenting a biological child. Kenneth takes what he has learned from authors I have also read (such as Purvis, Siegel and others) and relates his and others’ stories of how they have applied this knowledge to their families. His honesty and humility in sharing his triumphs and struggles is like having a dear friend nearby that “gets it” and encourages me to persevere in applying what I’ve learned to become the parent my child needs. I will find myself coming back to this book for refreshment over and over again.
Not just for foster parents!
Maybe you’re not a foster parent. Maybe you’ve never considered fostering or adopting. Why would you read this book? Because hopefully someone within your circle of family and friends *is* fostering, and because you love them, you want to learn what “their world” looks like. What struggles do they face that you’ve never faced? How can you be a better support for them? This book will take you far down that path of understanding as you peek inside the world of fostering through the author’s eyes. The vulnerability and authenticity of this book is refreshing. It isn’t full of ivory tower theories, but rather it is packed with “where the rubber meets the road” guidance and practical help.
Amazing and encouraging resource
As a ministry leader serving foster and adoptive families, I am excited to have such a rich resource full of encouragement AND practical tips designed to help families build connection. This is a must-have resource for everyone who is a foster or adoptive parent, or someone who loves them.
Honest and practical
This is a great resource for any adoptive or foster parent. It is an honest, practical and very encouraging book. Great extra resources available in every chapter you read. It has helped me to reflect on the way I parent and adjust where I could do better.
