Joshua Hook, associate professor of counseling psychology and a licensed clinical psychologist, co-wrote Replanted: Faith-Based Support for Adoptive and Foster Families for families who are adopting or fostering children, and the communities supporting them.
Hook and his wife and co-author, Jenn Ranter Hook, who has counseled kids in foster care, are both active in the nonprofit organization Replanted Ministry, which shares the same mission. Their advice ranges from getting a support system to obtaining training about trauma and attachment.
"The book talks about both the joys and challenges of adoption and foster care," Hook says. "The key point is that you can't do it alone -- you need help and support along the way."
