Who are the children of foster care? What, as a country, do we owe them? Cris Beam, a foster mother herself, spent five years immersed in the world of foster care, looking into these questions and tracing firsthand stories. The result is To the End of June, an unforgettable portrait that takes us deep inside the lives of foster children at the critical points in their search for a stable, loving family.

We’ve assembled a list of some of the best books ever written about parenting, foster care and adoption and given you an easy way to read about them and purchase them online by clicking through from this website.
