    Many people, including new and prospective foster and adoptive parents, presume that "replacing" a "bad" family with a "good" one will normalize children who've been neglected or abused. It's suprising when these kids, who "should" be bending over backwards to please their new parents, repeatedly lie, despite being caught red-handed; pick fights when things appear to be going smoothly; and set up their "replacement" moms and dads to play the role of bully. Fostering Changes provides a framework for understanding why so many foster kids engage in anti-social, self-defeating behavior despite months, and even years, in healthy, loving foster homes. It also describes the dynamics which can result in disrupted placements, even in families where seasoned and highly capable foster parents feel well-equipped to handle children with "special needs." This book, written as a practical guide for both professional and lay persons, is easy to read, with a minimum of jargon, numerous case examples, and charts summarizing key points. It's clear that Dr. Delaney, a psychologist, has a great deal of experience with emotionally disturbed children and a wealth of compassion for the pain of foster parents seeking to be healers. As a foster parent, I "saw" myself in these pages and "heard" Dr. Delaney telling me, "No, it's not just you," "There is hope," and, "You're not alone." My only major criticism is that Delaney uses most of the book to explain "the problem" and says relatively little about what to do about it. His follow-up book, Troubled Transplants, is a helpful sequel which emphasizes therapeutic intervention.

    Anyone who is a Foster or Adoptive Parent, needs this book on their bedside table! Simple to read, easy to understand, and enlightening for all, dealing/living with "kids in care". I would reccommend this book be mandatory for all Child Care Agencies to provide to Foster/Adoptive parents!Thank you Mr. Delany and please keep the books coming!
