Details

The prospect of adopting a child can be both exciting and overwhelming. There are many different types of adoption and choices to be made in pursuing an adoption. Your options for adoption will depend on the needs and interests of an adoptable child or youth as well as what is important to your family. These factors may include your flexibility around the characteristics of the child you wish to adopt, your feelings about contact with birth family members, your resources, and how long you are willing to wait for your child. This book discusses the options available for different types of families and provides guidance for adopting a child. (Imprint: Nova)
