Excerpt


Adopting the Hurt Child by Gregory Keck and Regina Kupecky Fewer and fewer families today are able to bring home a healthy newborn infant. The majority of adoptions now involve emotionally wounded, older children who have suffered the effects of abuse or neglect in their birth families and carry complex baggage with them into their adoptive families. ADOPTING THE HURT CHILD addresses the frustrations, heartache, and hope surrounding the adoptions of these special-needs kids. Written in a non-technical style accessible to a diverse audience, this book brings to light the grim truths, but also real hope that children who have been hurt - and often hurt others - can be healed and brought back into life by the adoptive and foster parents, therapists, teachers, social workers, and others whose lives intersect with theirs.
