    A must read for anyone thinking of Adopting! (and good for ALL parents!)

    I am a single man that is adopting an older special needs child. This book gives a direct, almost negative look at adopting, but it does tell you straight out that it is not easy, and it's right. It also gives lots of good advise that will help you as well as your child. This is a Must read. But also please remember that is seems to be a lot of the worst cases the author found as well.. Do not let this book keep you from opening your heart and home to a waiting child and giving him a 'forever family!!'

    A REAL GOOD READ

    Our ministry serves abused and neglected children from across America. We are not an adoption agency or parents who want to adopt. We almost every day receive calls from families who have adopted and find they cannot deal with the issues they confront with these children especially international adoptions. Dr. Keck has given us a window to the souls of these difficult children that we want to serve now and into the future. His insight has been especially helpful in preparing ourselves to help these children who have suffered so much. We have used and continue to use Dr. Keck's "Parenting the Hurt Child" and this is an excellent companion. For parents considering adoption or who have adopted the sooner you read this heplful text the better prepared you can be to serve hurt children who are where they are because of the lives they have been given from birth until someone gives them a safe and secure home. And from experience I agree with Dr Keck the Foster Care system across this country is broken and it makes our work doubly difficult. Shiloh Christian Children's Ranch
