Zachary's New Home: A Story for Foster and Adopted Children
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
Geraldine Molettiere Blomquist, MSW, LCSW, is a therapist and social worker for an intensive treatment program for seriously disturbed children and adolescents, for child protection services, and for adoption services. She supervises and trains foster parents for the Adams County Department of Social Services in Colorado, and is in private practice.
Paul B. Blomquist, a science librarian, maintains an interest in children's literature by reading to their daughters.
This story warmly expresses the genuine trauma of children who are placed in foster and adoptive care.…As both an administrator and therapist, I wholeheartedly endorse this engaging story for use for children with these special needs.
—Billie Lillie, MSW, LCSW, clinical director, Jewish Family and Children's Services, Denver, Colorado
Special and touching…[it] would make children going through such experiences know they are not alone and that there are people who understand.
The illustrations are beautifully pencilled…the authors do a credible job of portraying the anguish and self-doubt and testing that go on when a child is…placed in a new setting.
