John Houghton and his wife - middle class, highly educated, well-travelled - learned that they could not have children of their own. Instead they adopted three siblings, two boys and a girl, who were looking for 'a forever family.' What followed - the strange fears and tantrums, the disturbing behaviour - is all too common in adoptive families, but it is rarely talked about in public and has never been described with such transparent honesty as it is in the pages of this remarkable book. An emotionally powerful story of desperate wanting, anger and frustrated love, "A Forever Family", is a testament to the difference that two decent people can make by sustaining their commitment to an impossible situation.
