Merck ceo ken frazier to retire at the end of june
Kathy Harrison has cared for a changing cast of troubled kids – the children of prostitutes and addicts, the sons and daughters of criminals, and teenage parents who aren’t ready for parenthood – for more than a decade. All of this when raising three biological sons and two adoptive daughters. What would drive someone to commit to a life of constant, mostly unpaid chaos? The response is simple for Harrison.
Shenandoah Chefalo is reminiscing about his dysfunctional childhood, which included neglectful, drug- and alcohol-addicted parents. She has to deal with several transfers in the middle of the night with just minutes to pack, various school shifts, hunger, cruelty, and isolation. Shen had finally had enough at the age of thirteen. She demands to be placed in foster care after being abandoned by her mother for months at her grandmother’s retirement home. Isn’t it true that she’d do better in a stable home than with her mother?
Kristin Berry had heard all the horror stories about foster care and adoption when she was a teenager: violence, neglect, rejection, resentment, and misunderstandings. God, on the other hand, instead of closing her core, opened it wide. This is Kristin’s unvarnished account of some of her encounters as a foster parent to 23 children over a nine-year period. Living in a foster home, she discovered, is like living in a revolving door. You never know who will show up or who will have to say their goodbyes. Leaving the door open brings heartbreak and suffering, as well as adventure and unexpected joy.

To the end of june – book review
“Casts a piercing gaze on the tangled web of the American foster care system.” — On Point with NPR What are the characteristics of foster children? What do we owe them as a country? Cris Beam, a foster mother herself, spent five years researching these issues and tracing firsthand experiences in the foster care system. To the End of June is the outcome, an unforgettable portrait that takes us deep into the lives of foster children in search of a safe, caring home. Beam depicts the complexities of growing up in the foster care system, including the back-and-forth with agencies, the rootless shuffling between families, the emotionally charged tug between foster and birth parents, and the terrifying transition from foster care to adulthood. To the End of June is a tribute to resiliency and optimism for real change, while still humanizing and questioning a broken system. “[A] stirring… and energizing read.” — From the Chicago Tribune “A scathing indictment of foster-care practices and a probing examination of what it means to be a family.” — starred review in Publishers Weekly “Desperately sad and tentatively hopeful.” Salon —

This book piqued my interest because I was considering adopting an older boy. I had a hard time finding books on the subject and was shocked to find that none of the Barnes and Nobles in my area had even one book on foster care or older adoption. Fortunately, my neighborhood bookstore (Elliot Bay Books) had at least two shelves of adoption books, but the majority of them were about child adoption. I soon figured out why. Adoptions of older children are not the same as the ones I’d seen on TV and in film. I believe
I was blown away by how well-researched this book was as a foster parent of teenagers. It’s difficult to find a positive viewpoint on foster care because so much of what I see is either deeply demoralizing (abuse in families, for example) or unrealistically optimistic. Cris Beam’s book is neither, and while I kept hoping that she would say something that would give me more hope for the system than we currently have, I am grateful for her candor in the process.
