Terrific book for parents of children adopted from orphanages. We adopted our daughter nine years ago from an orphanage in Eastern Europe. Because of the trauma she experienced during her early childhood living in a government-run institution, we've had to learn new parenting techniques to help us work through attachment and behavioral issues. The suggestions presented in this book are not only practical, they work.

I wish I would have read this book 3 years ago when our family first became a foster family. It is a wealth of knowledge on connecting with children that have bonding issues

I purchase this book to better help me understand the four children my husband and I adopted. I don't care what the Social Workers or Adoption people tell you Love is not enough and if you are not prepared for what may be when you adopt a child then you really need to read this book and many others to understand you child. Our child came from a background of sexual abuse and nelegect and 6 years later we are still dealing with the backlash. Therapy is important too.

I hardly ever type reviews but this is one of the best parenting books I've ever read...and I've read a lot. I only have biological children but it was recommended to me by a friend with adopted children. The advice is practical and doable. I highly recommend it.

As a couple with no children, embarking on the foster care adoption process, this book is invaluable. It's a great read with really good practical examples and advice.

My husband and I are in the process of adopting a child with special needs. We also work with students in special education. This book is a great resource for parents and professionals working with "waiting children". Waiting children are children who are being adopted after birth. These children may have trouble adjusting to being adopted and may not know how to live in a caring family environment. They may still be mourning the loss of their birth family or may be mistrustful because other adults in their lives were unable to take care of them.

What a great book! It's a great reminder for parents to continually think from their children's perspective. There are so many reasons for children's behavior and we do our children a huge justice by considering the core of their actions. I definitely recommend this book!
