This is a guide to help parents through all stages of their child's development. Melina addresses topics such as open adoption, international adoption, and transracial adoption, as well as answering frequently asked questions such as:
How will my child "bond" or form attachments to me?
When and how should I tell my child he was adopted?
What should schools be told about my child?
Will adoption make adolescent upheavals more complicated?
And many more.
This is a well put-together book which helps you think of potential struggles. Many are obvious but so many really helped us as "conversation starters" within our home. It is highly recommended by several adoption sites and I can see why!
