Editorial Reviews

Review

“This book answers so many of the questions I didn’t know how to ask as a foster and adoptive parent. . . . [It is a] book parents will turn to again and again.”
—Sherry Colomb, child welfare trainer and foster and adoptive parent
 
“As I read this wise, well-researched and well-lived book, I could feel my heart clouded by the complexity, heartache, and confusion parents feel when one of their children has known significant trauma. . . . After I finished reading, I understood why there is rich hope and joy for those who embrace this privilege.”
—Dan B. Allender, PhD, professor of counseling psychology and founding president of the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and author of The Healing Path and Healing the Wounded Heart

“Tantrum has written a must-read handbook for parents who are considering or
are currently in the throes of the adoption experience. It is a wonderful mix of personal and professional information necessary for a successful adoption journey.”
—Cynthia Ridgway, licensed mental health counselor and adoption and trauma specialist 

“Easy to read, well organized, and full of information backed up by current research. Highly recommended for all foster and adoptive parents.”
—Cathy Wright, foster and adoptive mother
