No current Talk conversations about this book.
One of the great resources in this book are the discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Having discussions about these different aspects of adoption BEFORE actually adopting can get potential parents thinking about how they will approach the unique challenges of parenting children who began life with their first parents. Some of the topics, like parenting hurt children, will need to be expanded upon when parents are actually parenting and need more advice and specifics, but the basic principles are good ones and can help parents begin their journey more prepared.

We have been thinking about adoption, so when I saw this book for a good price on my Kindle, I snatched it up quickly!
Bottom line: This book is very good. It gives an overview of adoption, lots of comments from adoptive parents and adoptees, and a special emphasis on attachment problems that can occur with adoptive children.
If you are thinking about adopting, have adopted, and/or are concerned about attachment disorders in children, I recommend this book.
Authors Jayne E. Schooler and Thomas C. Atwood share insights into every aspect of adoption. This powerful resource addresses the needs and concerns facing adoptive parents, while offering encouragement for the journey ahead.
