Written for children adopted at any age and from any country, All About Adoption explores the what, how and why of adoption, as well as the many feelings kids can experience as they grow up.
How did you find me? What does adoption mean? Where did I come from? Would you send me back? What are all those papers? Will you always love me? Do I fit in? Why was I adopted?
And for parents, an extensive afterword discusses the unique practical and emotional dimensions of adoptive children and their families, with suggestions for answering the most challenging questions.
From the Note to Parents:
Adopted children bring many joys to their families. They also bring, as do all children, moments of stress, worry, and frustration. By continually conveying your ongoing availability and willingness to talk about the many feelings that arise as they grow up, you will find the journey easier, richer, and more beneficial for everyone. Parental openness works wonders
