Both of our kids are adoption and I've studied a lot and thought I "knew it all!" Hmmmm ....
Adoption: The Facts, Feelings, and Issues of a Double Heritage
Although this book was written about 20 years ago, I read it in 2010 and felt it was valuable and not "dated." It starts by giving the reader a basic understanding of the evolving social concerns about and solutions for orphaned children throughout the history of the USA. With this info, you will understand why adoption has evolved to what it is, today, and how and why changes may occur in the future.
this is a good type of book.. its hard for adopters to understand adoptees and our needs or wants in life.. its hard to not know who you are or what medical problems you might end up having. this book and others like it are helpful for adopters in trying to understand and its a good read for adoptees also :) good job on adopting kids we need people to do so. :)
