This is one of the best reading resources for fostered children that I have found. Children in care have so much uncertainty and so many complicated feelings around attachment, abandonment, conflicting hopes for the future, and this can contribute to difficult behaviours that make keeping a child in placement very difficult. This book has helped countless children I know understand their situation and used by sensitive carers and professionals who understand the child and their circumstances, this book is an invaluable tool. Recommend very highly.

Apart from the slightly irritating Americanisms - "mom" etc. (isn't anyone this side of the Atlantic interested in writing books for fostered children? Or is it that British publishers aren't interested?), this is an excellent book. The 4 year old we are fostering went back to it several times, and we often use the term "maybe day" when she asks what is happening today - ie, will there be contact? It is not specific to one reason why a child might be in foster care, and stresses that all the people involved care about what is best for the child, but that her job is to just get on with being a child. I've recommended it to our social worker, and the department has now been bought 3 copies. Very helpful.

I really like this book, the pictures are child friendly, its quite long for little ones (I read it to my 6 year old foster child), but the message is lovely, it explains the idea of different reasons for being in care, different feelings and different outcomes, all in a way that makes it seem ok to be in any of the categories. Good way to explore their feelings and discuss the ideas it raises/help them make sense of their situation. It will be left 'lying' around so they can raise it again if they want to.

Super book with a clear message. It was a bit long so you may need to edit it for younger children. Great for 5 yrs plus.

What an amazing book. The child I gave it too loved it. It helped him make sense of a very scary world. 'That happened to me' as the picture and words described what a judge did. His sister loved it too and wrote a book report on it for her homework. Every child in foster care should be given this book!

Was looking for story books to use with a young foster child. This was obviously American and not really what I was wanting for this child.

This book sparked off some interesting conversation between me and my foster child that we had never talked about. Very helpful.

Bought as a foster carer for foster children. This is a lovely book that has come in very handy with more than one foster child.
