Overview

What does a foster kid need to do to overcome his or her harsh beginning and make a successful transition into adulthood? Author Paul Enrique Knowlton answers this and other questions surrounding the foster care experience.

Knowlton and his siblings, first generation Cuban-Americans, entered the New Jersey foster care system in 1965. They remained in foster care for various lengths of time until they met again ten years later. But their reunion was short-lived.

In the years that followed, the siblings scattered and struggled, but, as they grew into adults, they bonded and prospered. Now, after twenty years of gathering information, Knowlton presents The Original Foster Care Survival Guide, which will give foster children and former foster children the critical guidance they need to overcome their experience and prosper in their new lives. With access to this unique combination of wisdom and knowledge, no foster child-present or former-will ever wonder, 'What do I need to do to get out of this mess?"
