Jonathon Letters, The


This book gathers together an exchange of letters between Lori Thomas, the foster/adoptive mother, and Michael Trout, Director of The Infant-Parent Institute in Illinois over the first year of placement of a particularly troubled child suffering from attachment disorder. It’s a story of ups and downs, because that’s how it is with children whose beginnings have been so tortured. But the reader begins to get a sense of the driving energy of this unique family, who somehow bounce back after every regression, and find ways to understand Jonathon’s defiance and rage and to remain connected to their purpose – to help this child heal.
