Published by Franklin Watts (Talking About series), 2005
This book is aimed mostly at children who are fostered or adopted when they are older. There is mention of babies, but as the theme of the book is how one feels about being fostered or adopted and the changes this makes to one's life, the basic idea is that this has happened recently and the child is still coming to terms with it. Worries such as fitting in with a new family, concerns about the birth family, difficult times such as birthdays are all talked about in gentle, reassuring terms. The emphasis is on adjustment. There are some suggestions on how to help the process, a list of further books to read, an index, and addresses and web sites for further information.
