Front Cover
Charles C. Thomas Publisher, Limited, 2009 - FAMILY & RELATIONSHIPS - 213 pages
This updated and expanded second edition continues the theme of the first edition: emphasizing the need to help adoptive parents understand some potentially challenging factors so they can deal with them positively and also comprehend the thinking process of their child. This book provides realistic and factual insight into the world of adoption. It deals with pitfalls that may not be obvious to the unenlightened adoptive parent. Adoptive parents reading this book can gain a different insight into their childOCOs reasoning, and this information can be used to avert some potential problems they might otherwise face. Topics include issues that adoptive families should be told about and are based primarily upon real life experiences relating equally to both sexes. In particular, it will inform those who havenOCOt experienced adoption personally about the many obstacles the adopted child may be facing. Then the parents and others in the family can begin to understand the childOCOs behavior. With understanding comes a new attitude and the impetus to change the whole atmosphere from negative to positive. The child and his parents will still have issues to deal with, but, with the source uncovered, issues can be faced openly. This book will be an invaluable resource to adoptive parents, social workers, counselors, and teachers."
