This is a tale, not very long ago or far away, about a little girl named Bella and her 6 brothers and sisters. Their parents, already burdened by their own addictions, are unable to care for even the most basic needs of their own innocent children. It is soon uncovered that these children are living in a terrible state of misery and neglect. The parents are eventually arrested and the Social Worker Agency randomly pairs up the bewildered children and sends them off into foster care. Will these children ever find each other again? Will they ever recover from these terrible events? Read the tale and find out what happened to this unfortunate family. The tale reflects the joys and pitfalls of adopting or fostering a child with a history of early trauma. It is accompanied by a parenting guide that provides practical step-by-step help in assisting families to work through their child's negative behaviors to achieve more positive ones.
