Freddy the Foster Frog



EL4Kids provides Adoption Support and Foster Care Ministries. Carol Gravante of EL4Kids has created a book about Freddy the Foster Frog. Some information about the book directly from EL4Kids.org:

"Freddy the Foster Frog finds himself in an unwanted situation. Things became unbearable at home and after physical abuse from his dad and his mom getting sicker and taken to the hospital he found himself homeless. Elinor discovered him by her trash can and rescued him. Many children in the world also find themselves removed from their homes and they are confused, angry, sad, insecure and want to go back to their families no matter how unsafe or difficult it was. They feel afraid and may be stuck in a younger emotional age because of the trauma they experienced with their birth families. The trauma of being removed is another hurdle to overcome. Foster children usually have supervised visits with their birth families and there are no clear ways that it can go. The confusion about the whole situation requires counseling for the children and much help for the parents wanting to correct the issue that warranted the removal of their children. There is much anger and confusion when a parent doesn't do their "homework" and loses custody especially when it is an older child that is removed. Once a TPR happens then open adoptions can be a wonderful thing but also can create its own issues.
This book has become a safe conversation starter that can reveal issues and when talked about can heal."
