Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The specifics of international adoption, which is becoming a popular alternative to domestic (U.S.) adoption, are very important because a different set of protocols is demanded. This basic guide is an essential tool for learning about the process of adoption and the unique requirements of each country. From home study to traveling tips, Sweet often adds her own experience. She is not afraid to address some of the most common concerns and pitfalls (e.g., cultural differences and medical problems) and offers practical suggestions and/or solutions. The appendixes, a significant part of this book, serve as a solid springboard to adoption agencies (by country and state), state adoption units, Immigration and Naturalization Service offices, translators, support groups, educational services, and publications. Useful reproductions of common government forms are included. Highly recommended for public libraries.Lisa A. Errico-Cox, Nassau Community Coll., Garden City, N.Y.
