I have relied on the information in this book many times during the adoption-in-progress of my own child. It is extremely well organized and explains the process and the paperwork required. It even includes samples of the forms typically encountered in the adoption process. It is a source of information complementary to what my international agency provides, and has increased my confidence that things are proceeding as they should. Tips like what kind to expect in a home study and what questions to ask when that important referral call comes makes this book compare to a knowledgeable friend who has been through the process. It provides a lot of information but is not a thick, wordy volume that is intimidating to read. There is a special section on the health problems one might expect to see in third-world orphans. Another section provides country-by-country adoption information, which is helpful if you are still trying to choose a country. It also includes a wealth of up-to-date resources for further information, including web sites, contacts for various organizations, and recommended reading.Was this review helpful?
