Say Yes Again
“He is safe here, but he needs to feel safe.”
“If he’s not going home to his parents, why can't he stay with us?”
Say YES Again is a story about Avery, a loquacious girl whose family welcomes foster children into their home. Avery gets a chance to be both a Big Sister and a Younger Sister when David and Luca are placed in her home. With her parents’ help, she learns about respite care, kinship placement, and what it means to “walk in another person’s shoes.” Love, empathy, and compassion grow in Avery’s heart as she realizes the impact of saying YES to foster care and wants to say YES again.
The Joy of Avery series offers resources for foster care families and brings the world of foster care to life by exploring Avery’s feelings as her family welcomes foster children into their home. Say YES Again is the third book in this faith-based series. The first book is It’s Okay to Wonder. The second book is Braver Than Me.
