    book excerpt

    He couldn't help staring at the people beside him. The Lawrences. They were at the Children's Aid office in downtown Truro.

    "Hello," he said kind of shyly. It's the first time they had met.

    "Hi," Mr. said. "My name's Joe." Then he rushed over and pumped the boy's hand -- almost scared him to death.

    "Hi," the boy said back. His throat sounded dry and his tongue was getting thick.

    "Well Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence, here he is -- Edward, Edward Wilson." The Children's Aid Worker looked around the room. A picture of two parents and a child was on the wall.

    The boy didn't know if he was supposed to get off his chair again or what. He already shook hands. And he had already said "Hi" and "hello."

    Maybe he should do it again, "Hi -- Hello!" Sounded sort of stupid but if that's what they want.

    “Edward, my name is Ann Lawrence." The lady came over and gave him a hug.

    Imagine, from a total stranger. A hug. He gave her a shy hug back. Some of her hair tickled his face. Her perfume was kind of neat, too.

    This was Edward’s first visit with his new foster parents. It sure felt different. Why is Mr. wearing a tie? It's so hot in here. His eyes moved rapidly around the room.

    Edward tried not to stare at the Lawrence's. He was so nervous he could only give them a sideways look. Edward pretended to be checking out the Teddy Bear poster on the wall. But he was really looking them over.
