As a child-welfare worker some 30 years ago, I wondered if things had changed much since my days of working in foster care and protective services to children. The truth is...not much, just updated technology.

I placed many children in foster care,many times on an emergency basis, and this book helped me understand what the experience was like for the people into whose homes I placed children.

Very interesting reading of a story that needs to be told.

As a foster care social worker this book really hit home. I could see several of my foster care clients in bits and pieces and sometimes as a whole in this book. Many of my foster families have been through very similar situations. The foster parents I have leant it too have read it very quickly. This is a very honest, straight forward account of the realities of foster care.
