You often hear adopted children saying “I don’t know why” after they have done something that just doesn’t make sense. Through the characters in this book this question will be explored and hopefully enlighten both parent and child. This book has especially been written for the following: • Adopted children. Meet Fiona, Yasmin, Jakub, and Shaniquia, who share their adoption stories. They will tell you how they feel about being adopted and how they feel about not living with their birth parents. As you read you will discover that parts of their story may be similar to yours. • Adoptive parents. This book is for sharing with your child. As you read together, it will prompt conversations around your own child’s birth history and adoption story. • Professionals. This is a valuable tool to use when undertaking life-story work and direct work with adopted children. It is aimed at children between the ages of six and ten but can be adapted and used for older or younger children. Topics include: • neglect • contact • bedwetting • multiple placement moves • death of a birth parent • neglect and mental health issues • stealing • bullying • feelings of not deserving anything good • negative feelings towards the adoptive mother • destructive behaviour
