Product description

Product Description

Foster care and adoption are rewarding, but carry with them additional stresses that many people are not prepared for or familiar with. This book offers practical, encouraging advice for those in all stages of the foster care or adoption journeys. It covers everything from important preparation ideas beforehand, to surviving the first weeks home, to PADS (Post Adoption Depression Syndrome), to tips and suggestions for ongoing self-care for years to come. The newly updated edition also has chapters on marriage and secondary trauma.

Written by a former foster parent and adoptive mom of many, Self-Care for Foster and Adoptive Families offers hope and support from someone who has been there. It is an essential guide for all foster and adoptive parents.
