Why This Foster Care Book
As someone who works in the foster care industry you no doubt have seen the look of fear, confusion, and outright concern that accompanies a child being admitted to foster care. It can be truly heartbreaking. Recently I wrote a book called Jaden Goes to Foster Care, a tool for both parents and children to navigate what can often be a turbulent transition into foster care.
Jaden Goes to Foster Care is based on my own research which shows that foster parents more easily bond with foster children by practicing the positive traditions of the child’s birth family (weekly routines like baking cookies). By creating a familiar environment the initial upheaval that a child may experience in foster care is often greatly diminished. And, with equal benefit I found that these traditions allowed the foster and birth parents to better connect with one another. These connections made them more willing to work together for the benefit of the child. This book really is an instruction manual for parents, but it is written in a way that accessible for both them and their children. This makes Jaden Goes to Foster Care a rarity in a literature that often targets either parents or children exclusively.
Given the positive feedback I have received on the book and how it has helped those in foster care, I have decided to allow all who desire to preview the entire book for free (after all, I often like to see what I am buying before I purchase it). Just click here: Preview of Jaden Goes to Foster Care.
