After several years of trying to find the best -- the VERY BEST -- book on adoption? I've found it. Like everyone on the Amazon.com review page, I'll say the same thing: you need to think about it? It's in here. Not just a practical book, but a thinking book and a feeling book. I can not recommend it more highly. If you end up with my copy of this book? You'll find it in carefully guarded, nearly pristine condition, because it was so important to me for so long.
