The Adoption Decision

25 06 2008

I think this book is an excellent place to start if you are just beginning to consider adoption. Author, Laura Christianson, has adopted two sons and has provided a wealth of information regarding things you need to think about as you decide whether or not adoption is for you. It is simple, straight-forward, and filled with anecdotes of adoptive families. I found it helpful even though we had already begun the adoption process as it touches on several subjects relevant to issues we may face such as: failed adoptions, dealing with comments from others, open adoption, attachment difficulties, transracial issues, and more. I highly recommend this book. Click on the image to read more reviews or to purchase this book.

Thank you so much for posting such a nice review of “The Adoption Decision.” You are correct; the book is for parents to use before, during, and after adopting. I’m glad you found it helpful.

I will put a link to your review on my Exploring Adoption blog (
