"This one story brings the theories, research, professional conferences and trainings to life. And makes all the effort worthwhile."This compelling story tracks Wayne’s journey from first being fostered by Lorna at the age of nine, in a therapeutic fostering placement, through nearly four years of family life. Wayne is traumatised by his early experiences of neglect and domestic abuse. Even when surrounded by a team of experienced foster carers, counsellors and therapists, helping him grow and heal will be along and difficult process. But Lorna and her family are determined not to give up hope...
