Overview

All adopted teens have questions-questions about their adoptive family, about their birth parents, and about how adoption has affected and will continue to affect their lives. But not every adopted teen knows how to approach these questions or how to handle the intense emotions and high stress often associated with them.

This guide has answers. Based on true stories, extensive research, and Danea Gorbett's own in addition to her background in psychology and education, Adopted Teens Only delivers:

Suggestions for bringing up sensitive topics with all types of adoptive parents
Insight on what your adoptive parents might be going through
True stories of birth mothers
Practical information on whether and how to search for birth parents
Seasoned advice on what to expect and how to prepare for reuniting with a birth parent.

Gorbett offers confirmation that what you feel, think, wonder, and worry about as an adopted teen is normal and important, and she helps you acknowledge and celebrate the unique gifts and many advantages of growing up adopted.

Comforting, empowering, and ultimately practical, Adopted Teens Only is the indispensable survival guide for adopted adolescents and anyone who loves them.

    I've never been adopted but i feel for those kids that are adopted. Some go to families that don't care about them only the money. Some get abused. Honestly if someone wants to adopt someone they should adopt them because they want them to have nice life not adopting for money and definitly not abusing them.

    i have been through alot in my 16years of life

    I was adopted when i was 11. It was the best thing that has happened to me but i struggle everyday because of my past. I'm getting used to haveing someone love me but it isn't easy i don't understand why someone would love me because i grew up without anyone to be there for me. I wish there were more books like this to help children who were adopted at an older age. I know from personal experience that the emotions are sometimes to much too handle.
