This book is one of the many casualties of the Web where ever changing country guidelines can be found with a click of the mouse. In Alperson¿s defense, a printed publication of this nature is by definition static and outdated before it even hits the market. Still, this book makes for good reading and provides good advice. It is definitely worth reading, but the reader is advised to double check the figures and requirements on the Web and elsewhere.

As someone who is just starting the process of adopting a child internationally, I found the information on the internet to be more up to date than in this book from 1997. The truth also, is that most people involved in this process want to know a lot more about country and agency specifics - the author clearly states that she can not give this information. On the other hand, if you just want to read antedotes that help you realize you are not alone - there is some of that in this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
