Succeeding as a Foster Child: A Roadmap to Overcoming Obstacles and Achieving Success
Dr. Jamie Schwandt provides first-hand experience and in-depth research on the steps foster children must take to achieve success. These powerful lessons provide a roadmap for foster children to beat the stigma and pave their way to excellence. “I wish someone would have shared this insight with me when I was in foster care.” This is a common contention by the author and research participants. This book is a shortcut to eliminating this feeling and steering directly towards action and results. This book will provide tools to overcome challenges as well as contribute to the knowledge foster children have about the great opportunities they have been afforded by simply being foster children. Life in foster care is a temporary solution, but success is permanent. Embrace this opportunity, take advantage of the vast of resources, be positive and succeed!Author: Jamie Schwandt, Ed.D.
