Reviews - What do our customers think?
Useful, but outdated  Feb 17, 2007
This book provides a solid overview of the adoption process. However, it was written a decade ago, and much of the information is now out-of-date. For people considering international adoption, I'd recommend Dawn Davenport's book, The Complete Book of International Adoption. The two books are similar in content, but Davenport's is current. The Gilman book is still worthwhile, but it wouldn't be my first choice.
 
Excellent informative reading for beginners in Adoption reaserch....  Oct 30, 2006
This is one of the books that you can say "Don't judge it by its cover". When you see it at first you could say "This is only for couples" but you will get wrong. It's excellent for couple adoptive parent like for single adoptive parent. It's very detailed, it even mention topics that not many adoption book covers. I highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for adoption either you are single or not.
 
A great place to start!  Aug 12, 2006
Wow, this book is packed with information! It is an excellent starting point for anyone considering adopting.
 
Fantastic  Dec 14, 2005
This book will forever be intimately associated with the happiest and most important part of my life.
 
good resource like it says on the cover!  May 29, 2004
For all those touched by adoption. Dispels the myths.
I also recommend:
For Late Discovery Adoptees: "Adoption Forum" by Kasey Hamner
For anyone touched or interested in a true-life story: "Whose Child?" by Kasey Hamner
"Primal Wound" by Nancy Verrier
