E-mail deze pagina. Auteur: Deborah Gold. Uitgever: Ohio University Press. Samenvatting When Deborah Gold and her husband signed up to foster parent in their rural mountain community, they did not foresee that it would lead to a roller-coaster fifteen years of involvement with a traumatized yet resilient birth family.
They fell in love with Michael a toddler when he came to them , yet they had to reckon with the knowledge that he could leave their lives at any time. In Counting Down, Gold tells the story of forging a family within a confounding system. We meet social workers, a birth mother with the courage to give her children the childhood she never had herself, and a father parenting from prison.
We also encounter members of a remarkable fellowship of Appalachian foster parents-gay, straight, right, left, evangelical, and atheist-united by love, loss, and quality hand-me-downs. Gold's memoir is one of the few books to deliver a foster parent's perspective and, through Michael's own poetry and essays, that of a former foster child.
In it, she shakes up common assumptions and offers a powerfully frank and hopeful look at an experience often portrayed as bleak.
