The book was very helpful to both myself and my husband. We are in the process of adopting and want to be as educated as possible before the baby arrives. There was also good information that we found helpful as to our 18 year old son who is still living at home.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Very engaging, Excellent tone
I have read other books that addressed concerns similar to this book (e.g. infant vs older children adoption, the grieving process, addressing the adoption with stranger, potential difficulties as the child develops) and this book was much better than the others. The others seemed so negative and heart-rending that it was difficult to read and started to make you re-think your decision to adopt. This book was very truthful and didn't hide anything, but somehow avoided the overall negative tone.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

There are various sections I wish had been discussed in more depth, although since I haven't actually adopted yet, I am not sure what more they would say. Still, I learned a lot and would definitely recommend this book.
