Welcome to the Foster Lane, by Sarah Salisott

Let me begin with this: I am not a parent. That being said, I am someone who has done and continues to do a lot of work with parents, especially in the foster care, adoption, and kinship care spaces. I have read about and written for this group of caregivers extensively over the past 20 years. It can often be challenging to strike the right tone and balance; experienced without judgment, authoritative without preaching. Author, parent coach, and foster and adoptive parent Sarah Salisott strikes a good balance of all these elements in her book, Welcome to the Foster Lane. As a parent who is walking a similar journey as her clients and readers, her words hold the extra value of lived experience. She not only shares what she has learned from education and training but also first-hand examples of what has (and hasn’t) worked in her own family. This slim volume holds a wealth of tips, strategies, and helpful information for parents on the journey of caring for kids who have experienced trauma.
