Adoption Is Forever

( 1 )

Overview

Adoption doesn't end when the papers are signed -- not for the birth mother, not for the adoptive mother and not for the adopted child. It is a decision with consequences that last a lifetime. While there are many wonderful books on how to adopt, when to adopt, making an adoption plan, and the like, ADOPTION IS FOREVER is at times humorous, sometimes gut-wrenching, but always honest. "A refreshingly new look at adoption," reviews Roger H. Rubin, Ph.D.

    An Astonishing View of Adoption by Two Women Who Have Experience on Both Sides of the Issue.

    You will be fascinated and deeply impressed by these two interwoven stories. Rhonda Pollero was forced to jump through hoops, bribe officials, and fight a frustrating and seemingly endless battle with Russian authorities in her attempts to adopt a small child from an orphanage in Russia. That she eventually succeeded is a tribute to her unswerving determination.
    Traci Hall was a footloose teen when she realized she was pregnant. She knew she wasn't mature enough to raise a child, but she couldn't bring herself to terminate her pregnancy. Despite conflicting advice from the adults in her life, she succeeded in picking adoptive parents for her baby who were willing to accept her as a participant in an open adoption.
