A Book To Help Children through Adoption and Other Family Transitions. 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 experiences, the book is designed to help children through the complicated process of adoption and other family transitions - such as welcoming adopted children into their home, joining step-families and blended groupings, or moving between one separated parent and another.
Adopted children can undergo a wide range of emotions when facing these transitions. Roxie's story shows children it is perfectly normal to be afraid or anxious and to ask questions, and most importantly that they are moving into a loving, caring family and everything will be all right. The book includes a "Parent & Therapist Guide for Adoptive Families" written by a professional therapist to help adult caregivers in guiding children through the adoption process and answering questions they may have.
