5 out of 5 - Really interesting read... 21 Oct 2011

By Julia Wilson

Really interesting reading – love the ‘things to think about’ section at the end of each topic. Lots of what we should be doing just not confident it’s happening to the extent it should. The first book I’m aware of that puts all this together in one place. - Julia Wilson, professional advisor, adoption and fostering panels, Solihull MBC.
