Roxie the Doxie Finds Her Forever Home is a heartwarming story that will appeal to all children, and an excellent book that will help parents begin a discussion with their child about transitioning to a new home, be it to a loving adoptive family or a blended family, welcoming an adopted child or a move to a brand new community. The included Parent Guide is a great tool to help adults craft questions that allow children to speak freely about their feelings. The Therapist Guide is an excellent clinical tool as an adjunct to the therapeutic process.”
