This book provides a foundation of resources and tools to help professionals and parents support children as they move through the foster care system to adoption. At times it can focus on theory and practice but it helps families understand why kids move and how their moves affect them. This is considered a seminal work in the field containing practical and thoughtful information about special needs children. More current material on new neurological research and brain development was not available at the time this was written. However, this is still a valuable resource with insight on various aspects related to foster and adopted children.
