This is one the few books that you can actually relate to if your a foster parent or interested in becoming one. It is not just a book with a list of do's and don't, it explains in detail so the average reader can understand. It not only gives you a verbal understanding of foster parenting but it gave me a visual look into foster parenting. This book was exceptional and I would it to anyone who does foster parenting, interested in foster parenting, or anyone who is just looking for a good book to read.

I really enjoyed this book. It highlights many points of Foster Parenting or any Parenting. It advises you that there are good and bad situations in every household but you have to find an approach that best suits you on how to deal with that particular problem...
