Description

A practical roadmap for foster and adoptive families

Caring for children is deeply important to the heart of God, and adoption and foster care are extensions of that. But this road isn’t always easy, for the parents and the children in their care. It’s important to understand the unique experiences that children impacted by adoption and foster care can have—such as a history of trauma, separation, grief and loss, and questions about their identity—in order to support them through all their feelings, behaviors, and questions. How can we help them navigate their identity, and sit with them in the unknowns of their story, or the grief and loss that comes up?

Drawing on the latest science and research on trauma, attachment, sensory processing difficulties, cultural competence, grief and loss, and more, authors Jenn and Joshua Hook provide a trauma-informed approach to support adoptive and foster families—to help their children heal, grow, and thrive.
