What does the process of adoption or fostering involve, for the carers and the child? What is it like to care for a child, and help develop their identity and self-esteem? How does it feel to be adopted? "Could You be My Parent?" is a book of stories - the stories of children who need a new, permanent family and the stories of people who have welcomed them into their homes. These stories describe, often in people's own words, what it's like to want to care for someone else's child, a child who is vulnerable and often traumatised - and what it's like when it actually happens. Children also give their view of adoption, and the part it has played in their lives. For nearly twenty-five years, many people, both children and adults, have shared their adoption experiences with the readers of BAAF's family-finding newspaper, "Be My Parent". Now, this enthralling anthology gathers together a selection of these informative, often moving, accounts, taken from the newspaper over the last decade, to create a fascinating snapshot of the process of adoption and foster care, and the experiences of the carers and children involved.

This collection is essential reading for adopters, foster carers and social services professional, and for all those considering adopting a child, or simply interested in adoption and fostering today.
