Help! I Need to Know About the Problems of Adoption by James Taylor and published by Day One Publications.
Adoption is sometimes thought of as something rather wonderful and romantic: the rescue of a lost and lonely child by a loving family, erasing all the pain or traumas endured by the grateful child. The reality, however, is often rather different, as is demonstrated in this booklet drawn from the personal experiences of the author and other adoptive parents. Aimed at those thinking of adopting, those who already have adopted and also those who are looking to support adoptive parents, this practical booklet is full of helpful advice on how to prepare for adoption, and also deal with adoption agencies, schools, the expectations of others and churches.
