A Book To Help Children through Adoption. Join Roxie, a dachshund dog, as she makes the transition from her temporary Foster home to her new "Forever" home. Based on a real dog and her story, the book is designed to help children through the often complicated process of adoption. The book includes a Parent and Therapist Guide to aid adults assisting children through the transition.Just like Roxie, adopted children can undergo a wide range of emotions when facing adoption, joining a new family in a new home, with unknown surroundings and circumstances. Through Roxie's story, the book shows children that they are moving into a loving, caring family and that just like with Roxie, there is nothing to fear and everything will be all right. It can also apply to children joining blended families, or moving between one separated parent and another.The book comes with a detailed Parent and Therapist Guide written by professional therapists, and customized to help adult caregivers in guiding children through the adoption process and answering questions they may have. Parents can use the guide to help answer questions, craft talking-points and formulate discussions with the children about adoption. Therapists can use the guide when working with children in any situation involving change, excitement, fear and anxiety. Parents thinking about adopting or having to explain adoption to their biological children will also find the guides useful.And there is a photo-section in the book with information about the real Roxie, including her e-mail contact so that children can talk directly with Roxie and ask her questions about adoption and other challenges they may not want to ask their caregivers - a safe way for children to express their feelings without feeling threatened. Individual answers to the children's questions are crafted by Roxie's real adoptive mother, Jody A. Dean, a Ph.D. psychologist with 28 years experience in the field.
