IBD Guest Authors: Deborah Gold – Counting Down & Wendy Welch – Fall or Fly "Foster and Adoption"

04-27-2019 4:00 pm -6:00 pm
The book costs 24.10

NEW TITLES ABOUT ADOPTION AND FOSTERING

Counting Down - When Deborah Gold and her husband signed up to foster parent in their rural mountain community, they did not foresee that it would lead to a roller-coaster fifteen years of involvement with a traumatized yet resilient birth family. In Counting Down, Gold tells the story of forging a family within a confounding system. Gold's memoir is one of the few books to deliver a foster parent's perspective (and, through Michael's own poetry and essays, that of a former foster child).

Fall or Fly - Chaos. Frustration. Compassion. Desperation. Hope. These are the five words that author Wendy Welch says best summarize the state of foster care in the coalfields of Appalachia. Her assessment is based on interviews with more than sixty social workers, parents, and children who have gone through "the system." These stories tell what foster care is like, from the inside out. In Fall or Fly, Welch invites people bound by a code of silence to open up and to share their experiences.
