Second Time Foster Child is a book about a boy who achieved permanency through adoption and who became a "second time foster child" as a result of the trauma he sustained prior to becoming a first time foster child. It is the story of custody relinquishment for mental healthcare. This week I'll be speaking on how we were traumatized three times. Once by our son's illnesses, once by inability to access funding, and once by the effects of being forced to endure a very broken system.
