5.0 von 5 Sternen A great resource 19. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This title is clearly one of the better adoption resource books on the market. It contains a large amount of practical yet thoughtful advice and brings to the attention of adoptive (or potential adoptive) parent considerations that clearly are appropriate but that may not have been obvious before reading the book. The first section of the book clearly would benefit prospective adoptive parents as they work through a myriad of issues before and during the adoption process.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great revised edition 17. Juli 2008
Von Alyssa A. Lappen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Do not make the mistake of buying earlier editions of this terrific volume. The new, June 2008 edition is considerably longer and more detailed than the original book, good though that is.

First off, this edition deals in much greater detail with questions and issues surrounding the inter-country adoption process, which today is governed by the Hague Convention for International Adoptions. (Would that the convention had been in effect when we adopted abroad.)

From our perspective, a decade-plus into the adoption experience, some of the material here is of little interest. But for families considering adoption or in the early stages of building and adoptive family, there is much good advice, beginning with discussions of the healthiest motivations for wanting to adopt, and acceptance of the "foundational realities."

It's appalling to learn here how many families have adopted children and never told them they were adopted. It should be understood that children have a right to know where they come from, even if the available details are very sparse. Along with accepting that foundation is the reality that adoption generally involves healing for the adoptive parents as well as the child. In most cases, the parents must accept their inability to conceive; they must also understand that their child suffers --- and will continue to do so --- from a Primal Wound that requires nursing and extra care to heal.

The book also has excellent chapters on attachment trauma and the difficulties of dealing with adopted kids during their teens. Children may say being adopted has been easy for them. And children adopted as infants, especially, do fare pretty well. But the fact is that at least 5% of children adopted as infants have extraordinarily difficult teen years --- much more so than the average child raised in his or her biological family.

And another fact is that raising an adopted child is a much different deal than raising one's biological child. There are a vast range of questions and issues that just don't come up with the latter. And while adopted kids generally emerge from the teenage years in good shape, helping them through this rough period requires super-parents. Don't go into it if you're not prepared.

Kids and families want control of their lives. This book can help give them control where otherwise, thanks to all the unknowns and separations, they might feel helpless. (I also recommend Beneath the Mask.)

Finally, the book reassures adoptive parents fearful of their child's search for his or her birth parents. Personally, I can't imagine feeling that way, but apparently it's very common. The experience of finding birth parents, in our case, was healing for all members of the adoption triad --- our child, the birth parents, and us, the adoptive parents. My advice: if it looks even remotely possible, try.

This book, though, explains that searching and learning a child's origin and "story" can most often help them resolve questions and issues, without which, the child will probably lead a much less productive and meaningful life.

This is a book that adoptive parents certainly need, for their child's whole life. As in holistic, and whole.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Helping Adoptive Parents See a Bigger Picture 19. Juni 2001
Von aafc - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I work with adoptive parents who are just getting their children (from the child welfare system). This book helps parents figure out what questions they need to be asking. It also is very instrumental in showing us what kinds of issues might come up 2, 5, 10 years from now for an adopted child. Just last night, i had another adoptive parent who is about to finalize their adoption rave about this book. Sometimes it is hard to see beyond a child's need today, but we must be prepared for tomorrow, and this book helps us to do that.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good reference but needs more examples 27. November 2010
Von K. Carson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
The Whole Life Adoption Book was required reading by our adoption agency. It contains a lot of good information on adoption for all different types including: domestic, international, foster-care, birth, older child, etc.

While we will keep the book because of some good sections we can use for reference, I felt that the majority of the stories and examples came from the same families or always related to adopting a child at birth. Some other items are never addressed in the book such as: Cost, CPS' role, process of adoption (international, private, or foster-care), etc.

I know the author wanted to keep the book to a manageable length and the items that are missing can vary in each state, country, and situation, but more information could definitely be given.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great for Domestic Adoptions but lacking on the International front 12. Januar 2007
Von CHH - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
I believe this book is a great resource for any adoptive parent, however, the book seems to be more for domestic adoption rather than international adoption. This is especially true of the chapter "Searching for a Past: Why adopted Children Seek Their Roots and How Parents Can Respond". My issue is that since my daughter is adopted from China there is absolutely no way that I can help her find out anything about her birth parents. In China, babies are abandoned. Birth parents do not have the option to take a child to the proper autorities to be placed for adoption, they do not get to make an adoption plan. Due to governmental restrictions birth parents are prohibited from doing these things. So what do I tell my daughter when she wants to find her birth parents? I was hoping for some direction in this book but found none. Also, the section on how to explain Abandonment does not work for children adopted from China because that is never how it happens there. This book is an excellent resource for parents adopting domestically and was helpful in explaining things that all adopted children will go through regardless of when they were adopted.
