Overview

Finally here's a book all parents can turn to with their questions about adoption. Presented in a straightforward, accessible format are all the answers about this complex subject for prospective parents, and perhaps eventually, for the child they adopt. Drawing on the latest available facts and figures from dozens of organizations and agencies, as well as speaking directly to parents and children from a variety of backgrounds and circumstances, this book covers both the legal and technical aspects of adoption, and the crucial emotional aspects as well. From the moment they begin to consider the process of adoption, prospective parents face a variety of overwhelming issues, choices, and decisions. Now, thanks to this book, they will learn every facet of adoption, from what they can expect from "home studies," to the red tape they may encounter when adopting a foreign orphan, to the difference between private and public agencies. A thorough discussion of the controversial Surrogate Mother alternative is also included, making The 125 Most Asked Questions About Adoption the most up-to-date primer of its kind. Of course, Paul Baldwin also presents answers to such emotionally fraught questions as the best way to tell children that they are adopted, and when it is best to do so. The concerns of adopted children are also addressed through discussions ranging from the search for a biological parent to what medical information an adopted child can expect to have access to, and the best way to respond to insensitive classmates. The 125 Most Asked Questions About Adoption covers every aspect of the adoption process and will help adoptive parents and children alike understand the unique issues that will face them in the course of their lives.
