Open Access Graduate Research Paper
John sits quietly in his sixth-grade classroom, trying to concentrate on his school work. Coming to this particular school at the beginning of fifth grade, he sometimes finds himself thinking of his past schools and homes. His current home, (not including his former adoptive home), is his fourth foster home since he and his sister were removed from their biological parents' home eight years ago. John's initial out-of-home placement was a result of neglect and abuse inflicted by his natural parents. Subsequent placements were made because of further abuse, time constraints, and lack of interest.
