What People Are Saying

Jeffrey L. Deaton
"Pat Johnston has the unique ability to understand the feelings of a person struggling with infertility and has once again shown why she is the authority on infertility and adoption resources. Adopting: Sound Choices, Strong Families is a wonderful tool that will help many people trying to make the transition from the emotional burdens of infertility to adoption. I would recommend this book for my infertility patients, regardless of where they are in the treatment process."--(Jeffrey L. Deaton, M.D., Reproductive Endocrinologist, Premier Fertility Center, North Carolina)
Gregory C. Keck
"As I finished reading Pat Johnston's new book-Adopting Sound Choices, Strong Families- I felt as if I had just found "Adoptipedia". Johnston leaves no rock unturned as she takes readers through a journey which begins long before people even know or realize that they may have an adoption journey. She examines every single issue mentioned in adoption literature; I found each page filled with valuable information for those individuals considering adoption. This well integrated piece of work is a "must read" for anyone thinking about adopting; it should be mandatory reading for all professionals who work within the adoption arena. Johnston illuminates issues well beyond those typically addressed in pre-adoptive training. This will become a handbook for those exploring adoption and for those working with them. I highly recommend this book!"--(Gregory C. Keck ,Ph.D., Founder/Director of the Attachment & Bonding Center of Ohio, Co-author of Adopting the Hurt Child and Parenting the Hurt Child)
Mark T. McDermott
"The world of adoption has changed dramatically over the last few years, making this update to Pat Johnston's previous books an essential tool. Adopting: Sound Choices, Strong Families will become one of the classic resources for the adoption community."--(Mark T. McDermott, Esq., Adoptive Parent, Adoption Attorney, Past president of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys)
Jayne Schooler
"Touched both personally and professionally by adoption for over three decades, Pat Johnston brings to her newest work, Adopting: Sound Choices, Strong Families, wise direction and thorough advice gained from such incredible life experiences. With solid insight, Pat guides her readers through the early stages of exploring and learning about adoption through to preparation for a child's arrival and the early months that follow, touching the emotional, relational and practical aspects of the journey. She fills each and every chapter with valuable information for families considering adoption and for the professionals that guide them in their journey of family building. This book will be a great addition to any agency's pre-adoption suggested reading. I highly recommend this tremendous resource!"--(Jayne Schooler, adoption educator and author/co-author of The Whole Life Adoption Book and Telling the Truth to Your Adopted and Foster Child.)
