Book Review: Sometimes

With a teddy bear as her constant companion, a child thrown into a strange world experiences so many deep feelings as she cannot bring anyone along from her former life. What a comfort this story can be to children in foster care when new and unfamiliar people, foods, homes, smells, routines, and activities surround them.

Author Keri Vellis captures some of the very real emotions children can feel when they are thrust into a new family. Kind people and warm words must embrace them as feelings of abandonment may abound. They need to know that they are not alone and that they are loved.

My three biological boys and I read this story together. One said he felt sad and another said he wouldn’t want that to happen to him. I had the opportunity to explain and encourage them about how we are a foster family who are the ones loving the children who have had their lives turned upside-down. We discussed compassion and how to reach out to others who are hurting.

Geared towards preschool and younger elementary ages, this is a perfect book to read to your frightened and unsure child on the day or evening of a new placement in a foster home. To know there are others out there in the same situation will bring some comfort. To know that they are safe in their new home will bring more comfort. Despite the fear and the uncertainty, this story will give hope for a brighter future. I highly recommend it to all families.
