Overview

Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide by Suzanne Buckingham Slade, Chr Washburn, Odelia Witt, Mary Sandage

The search for one's self during the challenging teen years can be even more difficult for the adopted teen. Many adopted teens have unanswered questions that may result in fear, anger, and low self-esteem. These feelings may be compounded by the isolation they feel because most friends and family members cannot fully relate to their situation. Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide enables young adults to explore their feelings as they read the personal experiences of other adopted teens. Through these stories, adopted teens can learn how others have resolved some of their adoption issues and gain powerful insights from those who have experienced some of their same frustrations, struggles, and concerns. Experienced adoption professionals share practical ideas and strategies for teens as they answer their questions in the "Teens Ask" sections of the book. Adoption experts, such as Hollee McGinnis (Policy & Operations Director for the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute), Judy Stigger (Director of International Adoptions at The Cradle), Kathleen Morrison (member of the board of trustees of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys), Katrina Carlisle (adoption counselor and search specialist at St. Elizabeth Coleman Pregnancy and Adoption Services), and others, provide valuable answers to teen questions. Replete with stories, pictures, and artwork by adopted teens, this up-to-date source will benefit teens as they move forward on their adoption journey.

Abortion is bad anyway you put it. I was adopted and thank god for that because my mom was going to have an abortion with me an i got another chance to hae a normal happy life and thats is what im doing if you kill a baby no matter how far along you are then you killing thag second chance that the baby could have had at a normal life. And if you 13 and having a baby then god bless you im sorry for wat is it was that happened to you. And if you just laied in your back then you need help and fast cuz we dont need a bunch of baby killers in this world when we ha e plenty of ppl that can give any baby a second hance and not think twice about it

Killing is wrong no matter what age it is. Besides putting the child up for adoption is a much more moral thing to do.
