This review is from: Home for Good: Making a Difference for Vulnerable Children (Paperback)
I have no direct experience of fostering or adoption but some close relatives are planning to adopt and I wanted to support them in that so I decided to read this book. I was aware of Krish Kandiah as he has been a speaker at the Keswick convention, although I have not personally heard him speak. The book is honest, insightful, informative and very readable. It does not "sugar coat" the realities of fostering and adoption, but in my view still manages to inspire and challenge us as to how we can respond in practical and tangible ways to the needs of vulnerable children. There is a challenge to the Church too. How do we welcome vulnerable and traumatised children in our churches? Are we loving, open, and flexible? Or are we, frankly ,not too keen on the noise, mess and inconvenience that may be involved? I was personally challenged in this area, and have hopefully re-adjusted some attitudes as a result. Read this book!
