ADOPTIVE FAMILES DEAL WITH A SPECIAL DYNAMIC THAT AFFECTS PARENTS, ADOPTED CHILDREN, AND BIRTH CHILDREN. And they face unique issues of attachment, adjustment, and identity.

This book will give hope and direction to those considering adoption and to those desiring to improve and develop the adoptive family relationship at any stage.

Great for Domestic Adoptions but lacking on the International front  Jan 12, 2007
I believe this book is a great resource for any adoptive parent, however, the book seems to be more for domestic adoption rather than international adoption. This is especially true of the chapter "Searching for a Past: Why adopted Children Seek Their Roots and How Parents Can Respond". My issue is that since my daughter is adopted from China there is absolutely no way that I can help her find out anything about her birth parents. In China, babies are abandoned. Birth parents do not have the option to take a child to the proper autorities to be placed for adoption, they do not get to make an adoption plan. Due to governmental restrictions birth parents are prohibited from doing these things. So what do I tell my daughter when she wants to find her birth parents? I was hoping for some direction in this book but found none. Also, the section on how to explain Abandonment does not work for children adopted from China because that is never how it happens there. This book is an excellent resource for parents adopting domestically and was helpful in explaining things that all adopted children will go through regardless of when they were adopted.
Must read for parents adopting the older child  Oct 28, 2006
Jayne Schooler's book is well written and easy to read. She offers many suggestions the adoptive family needs as they grow together as a family. Our family recommends this book to all parents beginning the adoption process.
Helping Adoptive Parents See a Bigger Picture  Jun 19, 2001
I work with adoptive parents who are just getting their children (from the child welfare system). This book helps parents figure out what questions they need to be asking. It also is very instrumental in showing us what kinds of issues might come up 2, 5, 10 years from now for an adopted child. Just last night, i had another adoptive parent who is about to finalize their adoption rave about this book. Sometimes it is hard to see beyond a child's need today, but we must be prepared for tomorrow, and this book helps us to do that.
A great resource  Apr 19, 2000
This title is clearly one of the better adoption resource books on the market. It contains a large amount of practical yet thoughtful advice and brings to the attention of adoptive (or potential adoptive) parent considerations that clearly are appropriate but that may not have been obvious before reading the book. The first section of the book clearly would benefit prospective adoptive parents as they work through a myriad of issues before and during the adoption process.
