A child is coming - whether you approve or not it's time to get with the program! If someone you care about - a family member, co-worker, or close friend - has recently announced that their family will be growing through adoption, you may have questions. After all, unless you have personally experienced adoption, you may know very little about how adoption works and what it means. Are you worried that your loved one may face disappointment? Do you find yourself wondering exactly what your role is going to be in the child's life? Does the term "open adoption" confuse and concern you? Just what are the privacy boundaries for families built by adoption: what is it okay to ask about? Adoption Is a Family Affair! will answer all of these questions and more, offering you information about who can adopt, why people consider adopting, how kids understand adoption as they grow up, and more. This short book is crammed full of the 'need to know' information for friends and families that will help to encourage informed, happy and healthy family relationships.… (more)

While this book would make for a poor framework for the adoptive parent, it is true to its aims. We bought a copy for parents, aunts & uncles, and cousins because we thought so highly of its impact. Adoption is a family affair. And this book will help your family to prepare. ( )

Recommended by several articles & people as a book to pass on to family. I bought it & read it-was a little disappointed. I wish they had covered more attachment issues & other things we have been trained on. The book is encouragement to "get on board" for those who opposed adoption when you made the announcement. Worth sharing as it does have some good stuff in it - but I hope I don't make anyone feel that they weren't supportive. It is a small book & easy to read. ( )
