Helen Oakwater’s ‘Why are these children any different?’
This is a fantastic four-page PDF of Helen’s article in Education Now magazine, which explains the legacy of early trauma. Highly recommended as a resource to print and give to your child’s school. Download it here, then also visit the rest of the site at fabparents.co.uk.
Support booklet for churches
I distribute this booklet whenever I have the opportunity – it’s great for church leaders, church children’s group leaders, pastoral support people and any church members who want to help adoptive families. It’s produced by Home for Good and Care for the Family.
I recommend ordering plenty to give away to anyone at church who expresses any interest in supporting your family or has questions about why a child behaves in certain ways, can’t have their photo put online, etc.
