Wounded Children, Healing Homes: How Traumatized Children Impact Adoptive and Foster Families

For the last three years I have been on a journey. I have noticed overtime that families - both foster and adoptive families caring for traumatized, abused and neglected children have been transformed by their journey. Many families do well. Other families struggle. Still others do not make it and dissolve their relationship with their adopted child.

I began asking myself what we can do to prevent such troubling disruptive times for our families. I hope in part, our newest book, Wounded Children, Healing Homes: How Traumatized Children Impact Adoptive and Foster Families, will be part of the solution.

Why doesn't our child return our love? What are we failing to understand? What are we failing to do? These questions can fill the minds of adoptive parents caring for wounded, traumatized children.

Families often enter into this experience with high expectations for their child and for themselves but are broadsided by shattered assumptions. This book addresses the reality of those unmet expectations and offers validation and solutions for the challenges of parenting deeply traumatized and emotionally disturbed children.
