This is an honest and open account of the struggles, sadness, and joy that comes with the job of being a parent to a traumatised child. From the sleepless nights with babies withdrawing from drug-addiction, to the heartbreak when a child moves on to another home, to the loving chaos times that come with a large and blended family, John DeGarmo fights for the many children who have come through his home. This is valuable reading for those in foster families and fostering agencies, and for social workers who are looking for a true-to-life memoir of a foster parent.

John DeGarmo has fostered over forty children since 2001. John regularly speaks on his experiences at conferences and training sessions and is dedicated to improving and promoting successful foster and adoptive care systems.
