Overview

Between 1990 and 2009, American families adopted over 300,000 children from overseas. Like every process that involves multiple layers of bureaucracy, this phenomenon gave birth to corruption, numerous struggles for adopting families and more importantly, countless success stories. D.A Turlington was one of those 300,000 families that took the international adoption journey with his wife Laura, first from Russia in 2005, and then in Guatemala in 2008. Join him as he gives you a firsthand account of his first adoption with refreshing honesty, never hesitating to share the warm moments and struggles that came about during the process or to describe what's right and wrong with a complicated, expensive, politicized and often cumbersome process that adoptive parents must go through once they have chosen to adopt internationally. Published by the International Adoption Contact Group. Edited by Robin Merrill
