Can This Child Be Saved? Solutions for Adoptive and Foster Families



“Over 200,000 children live in foster homes in America today. 40-60% of these children have been severely and permanently damaged by their pasts, resulting in behavioral, psychiatric, emotional, and neurological disorders. Large numbers of previously adopted children (both domestic and international) suffer from similar problems. In the past, these children would have been cared for in specialized facilities staffed 24 hours a day by professionals. Today, they are placed in inadequately prepared adoptive or foster homes where they often become uncontrollable and forcefully reject those who want only to love and help them. Yet, in the past when families sought understanding and help, they found that there was little or none available. Now there is.

Can This Child Be Saved? Solutions for Adoptive and Foster Families offers parents help, hope, encouragement, and support. It examines what causes children to act and react the way they do and why conventional strategies and approaches often fail to reach them. It explores and validates parents’ feelings and offers struggling families clearly detailed and easy-to-understand parenting techniques and therapeutic approaches that DO succeed with disturbed children.”
