    A Must-Read For Foster and Adoptive Parents!

    This book should be on the bookshelf of all foster and adoptive parents!

    This book does a wonderful job of explaining why it's not always safe for children to be with their,primary families. It also gives children the permission they often need to embrace their emotions about the experience - how it's okay to grieve, okay to be angry, but also okay to love again (something that children in foster care or who have been adopted from foster care often struggle with).

    With my three oldest, I was able to immediately implement many of the concepts presented in the book. The Safe Treehouse and the 3R's (Right, Responsible, Respectful) are key take-aways that my family now uses every day.

    Mom to: as (7y), as(5y), fs(5y), fd(2y), fd (9m).
