Books for Adults

Books have been a tremendous resource for us as foster and adoptive parents. Here we will share books pertaining to foster care, adoption, trauma, attachment, special needs, and anything we feel may be helpful to caregivers, teachers, counselors, social workers, and others involved with foster or adoptive children. Inclusion on this list does not necessarily mean endorsement as we have not had the chance to read all of them. By clicking on “Book Review,” you can learn a bit more about each book, and if we’ve had a chance to read it, we will review it on the these links.
