Finding the Right Spot: When Kids Can't Live with their Parents


Product Description

Published USA, 2004
The young girl in this story lives with Aunt Dane, a foster mother, who `takes care of kids when their real parents can`t`. The girl is torn between wanting to be with her mum in the shelter `where you can smell a thousand smells but most of them you wish you couldn`t`, and Aunt Dane`s house where it`s warm and safe. She is confused, sometimes angry, and ready to leave when her mum gets better, but is constantly disappointed by her mother`s behaviour. This is a story about resilience and loyalty, hope and disappointment, love and sadness. `Yesterday is history, tomorrow a mystery, and today is a gift` muses Aunt Dane. It`s about making the spot you`re in feel right.
