When I met Dr. Sue, she helped me change and turn my whole thought process around on the fact that I could not only have goals but actually accomplish them. I thought I could never accomplish a goal because I was a foster child and we had stereotypes placed on us that we would just be a statistic of the system. No one before Dr. Sue ever validated my feelings. -- From the Foreword by Nyleen Shaw, foster care survivor and advocate
Dr. Sue Cornbluth's keen insights will empower parents as they attempt to love, nurture, and correct their children's hurt lives. Anyone parenting or considering parenting a foster child or adopting a traumatized child should read this work. -- Gregory C. Keck, Ph. D., Founder/Director of the Attachment and Bonding Center of Ohio, co-author of Adopting the Hurt Child, Parenting the Hurt Child, and author of Parenting Adopted Adolescents
