Press Reviews

  • Sue Brunton, Chief Executive Officer, Scottish Adoption and Fostering

    This book is just the right mix of theory, which provides context, and lots of practical ways to connect with your adopted or fostered child. It is really accessible and you can dip in and out should you need a bit of practical advice for a particular situation. I would actually recommend it to anyone parenting a child whatever their background as the focus on building connection is so central to how we should care for all our children.
  • Sally Donovan OBE, author of The Unofficial Guide to Adoptive Parenting

    Everyday Ways is a practical, warm and supportive book for those who are reparenting children who have had difficult starts in life. As well as offering ways to approach day-to-day family life, it includes lots of ideas for ways of creating connection through conversation starters and games. It's a great book for those starting out, as well as more established parents who are looking for fresh ideas and encouragement.
