May is National Foster Care Month. In Arizona it's Foster Care Awareness Month.

Why am I telling you this? Many of us have a passion for children in foster care or who are in need of adoptive families. Because all children deserve a safe, happy and loving home. Young people in foster care need nurturing adults as they have come into the state system as a result of a crisis in their own homes. With the help of dedicated people, many formerly abused or neglected children and teens will either reunite safely with their parents, be cared for by relatives or be adopted by loving families.

If you love reading stories with foster care and adoption themes, then I have some books for you! 

It's Not About Him is the story of a young woman who places her child in an open adoption.

Letting Go is about s single foster father who is in the process of adopting a young boy and the birth mother comes back on the scene. He struggles with the idea of letting go and giving God control.  (The child they adopt is from It's Not About Him.)

It's Not About Her is about a young woman who spent her teen years in foster care. The theme is there, though not as heavily as in the other books.

In First Response, the young woman was raised by her grandmother when her mom abandoned her as a child.
