I found this book to be so informative. I have wanted to adopt a child for a long time. My husband is not there yet. I would love to adopt a boy close to my children's age. This book has given me a lot more to think about. One of the best features of this book, is the Adoption Resources. I had no idea where to even start, but I sure do know. Another feature that I loved about this book was the index. For example, if I want to find where I read about "Older children," there is an index that leads me exactly to where it is discussed in the book. I think this is so valuable, given the amount of information contained in this great book. If you are even considering adopting, going through the adoption process, or just want to learn more about adoption, I recommend picking up this book.
So its four years later. Did your hubby come round? What happened to you? If you happen to see this could you please answer. Your review was so good.
