What I Wish I Had Known…

When I first agreed to write a book about foster adoption, I knew what I wish I had known. But I wasn’t the only person who had ever fostered to adopt. So, I put a question out to many other adoptive parents that I knew. It was a very simple question:

“Before you entered into adoption or foster care, what do you wish you had known?”

The responses were overwhelming and incredibly honest. These are some of the answers.

About Attachment

About Post-Adoption Life

About the Process

About the Hardships

About the Surprises
