Wordless Wednesday: Fostering Families

Although this IS a picture, it's hardly a Wordless Wednesday.

I have another essay published!

Fostering Families Today saw fit to print a piece I wrote called "The Attachment Tree". If that sounds familiar, you might have seen it when I posted it on my old blog.

And the icing on the cake? My essay is in the same issue as an article by none other than Gregory Keck, my hero in attachment. Mr. Keck is the founder of the Attachment and Bonding Center in Ohio, and author of several wonderful books, including "Parenting the Hurt Child".
To see something I wrote just a few pages after something he wrote is a pretty big deal to me. I'm like, all goose-bumpy.

Anyone involved with adopted children or foster children should check out this magazine. It is a very valuable resource!
