Overview

Celebrating this classic's twentieth year in print, "Why Was I Adopted?" provides parents with a tool for helping their child understand the unique circumstances of their "birth" into an adoptive family.

Offering honest, clear explanations for some of the possible issues that an adopted child may face growing up, this book answers such questions as - How do adopted children deal with the fact that they may look nothing like their parents or siblings? What if they were adopted from another country? - Why did the birth parents give up the child? - How did the adoptive parents find the child? - Does being adopted mean the child is any better or worse than other children? - What if one day the child wants to know his or her birth parents?

"Why Was I Adopted?" explains away much of the initial confusion, instills a feeling of uniqueness in an adopted child, and encourages open lines of communication with parents.
