    Extremely thoughtful and thorough resource

    My husband and I are early in the process of researching adoption, and this book is an amazing resource. It is well written and thorough, containing useful information for every adoption situation--pre-adoption emotions, grieving infertility and moving onto embracing a new vision of family, challenges unique to international and domestic adoption, transracial/ethnic considerations, etc. I appreciated the evidence-based approach to addressing old adoption myths (e.g., myth: adopted families don't have the same "love" as biologic families). Melina is a renowned expert on adoption sociology and she really gave me a new perspective on how to see our future family as not just any family, but as thoughtful and emotionally rich adoptive family.

    more liberal than anticipated

    I was upset by reading this book. My husband and I are in the process of adoption and this book was recommended to us. We are a Christian couple who will raise are child(ren) on Christian principals. This book covers just about every situation that could happen with adoption. Examples: domestic, international, foster, parents who are married, single, gay. Highly disappointed!
