I really enjoyed this book. It's laid out in a way that anyone can understand taking a lot of the heavy lingo out so that it's easier to grasp. Laid out in sections, it covers a wide range of different adoptions and the details. What to expect, the costs, what you should know, what you need to do, ways to help you research, state/country laws and requirements, etc. If you or anyone you know is thinking of adopting, this book will be a great tool.
