The Last Bus Stop: An Adoption Story

By: Mandee LR Schoolcraft


About the Book

One day, two little boys had to leave their home because their mother was too sick to take care of them anymore. The boys were picked up by a bus and taken on an adventure to find their forever family. They stopped several times along the way, meeting new families who cared for them for a little while, but could not keep them forever. They continued on their journey, searching for a loving hug from a real mother and the laughter from a tickle fight with a real father, and a home to call theirs forever.

A sweet, loving take on foster adoption, The Last Bus Stop is a vital read for children and parents who are on their own adoption journeys.

    I am an Adoption Social Worker and have worked with fostering to adopt families. The book was well done; the ending had me “choked up" and I look forward to sharing it with a family that is finalizing their adoption on Monday. Thanks again! – Joanne, Hope 4 Kids, Dana Point, CA.

    “I enjoyed reading it. It really captures how the journey to find a forever home must feel for the children we serve. There are many resource parents that do great work but aren’t their forever families. Keeping the kids safe and loved until they find their forever families. I see the friendly bus driver as the social workers that are driving the children from place to place. They are with them, but the children still feel like they are on this journey by themselves. Loved how the family at the last bus stop was asking them, if they were their children. Showing the children that they are wanted and worthy.” - Jackie Jakob, Foster Care & Adoptions Director, Trinity Youth Services
