Away From Home is a short story about a young child’s experience in foster care. Like most children’s foster care journeys, this one does not have a fairy tale ending. More importantly, the child has learned that they are loved regardless of where they are. Use this story as an icebreaker to open up to your foster child about their feelings regarding their current situation and as an opportunity to hear what they want to share and what they need to be successful.

Jamie Hazen lives in rural Kansas with her husband and three children. She has worked for the judicial system for over 10 years. During this time she recognized that the needs of many foster children throughout rural Kansas were not being met. This recognition resulted in the creation of the HUGGSS Away From Home Foundation. Established in 2017, HUGGSS is a non-profit organization that specializes in easing the transition for children in foster care as they move between homes and by filling in the gaps with basic and necessary items to help each child be successful and feel loved. Unable to find a book that younger foster children could find relatable, Jamie decided to write Away From Home. Jamie has a passion for people and a heart that loves to help others. “Away From Home” is Jamie’s  first children’s book.
