9780091924126: What to Expect When You're Adopting...: A practical guide to the decisions and emotions involved in adoption

As would-be parents cycle through the adoption process, they balance anxiety and fear with the life-altering decision of adoption. The emotional toll of this dance can be completely overwhelming and can confuse parents while navigating the decisions of how to expand their families.

Drawing on extensive research and the author's own experience of being adopted, What to Expect When You're Adopting... does not gloss over the realities of the adoption process, but rather leads parents through the many stages and emotional aspects involved and offer practical and sensitive advice allowing you to:

- Make crucial decisions with confidence

- Build a strong foundation for your family

- Separate the myths about adopted children from the realities

- Discover the key to healthy attachment with your child

Dr Ian Palmer will also deal with the issues of single-parent adoption, infertility and, unusually, the option of remaining childless.

Review:

"A clear and encouraging guide to adoption, full of understanding and warmth - like having someone hold your hand right through a challenging, and hopefully rewarding, process" ( Kate Adie)

"a helpful introduction to the adoption process" ( Jonathan Pearce, Director, Adoption UK)

From the Author:

I am an adopted child and foundling. My journey has been an eventful and rewarding one. I hope this book will help all sorts of people see they can be adoptive parents and how to achieve this. That they can, through their actions, help a child or children achieve their full potential in this world.

I hope this book will encourage anyone contemplating adoption to put themselves forward as adoptive parents in the conscious act of love that is adoption.
