    An attorney gave me a copy of the book. I started reading it immediately. It is written in a language easy to understand. I have shared it with teachers, counselors, principals and friends. I started using principles right away and have seen results with my granddaughter and other children as well. Today I am buying copies to give away.

    I bought this for a friend at the recommendation of someone who has already adopted. She said this is the book that has helped them the most out of all the books she has read.

    So I didn't actually read the book, it was recommended to me.

    If you have adopted or are about to adopt, you may know that adopted children are different in their needs and it is different in how to parent them.

    Dr. Purvis has studied children from "hard pasts" and put science behind the methods/ideas of helping children. She believes any child can be healed and has a camp for severe cased children with wonderful results. Her trainings are always phenomenal if you ever have the opportunity to hear her speak. I suggest buying her DVDs, too.

    This book is a compilation of the basis of her work and is a good place to start. She has a downloadable study book to go along with it.

    This is a beginning for everyone adopting, but if you are adopting an older child, read this AND Parenting the Adopted Adolescent by Dr. Gregory Keck also sold at CBD. This one gives a basic and the other goes further.

    Haven't read it all yet but very insightful. We have one adopted boy from Russia and this book has helped me understand why the way he is. He's a wonderful 5 year old that didn't have hugs and kisses when he was little. I've smothered him love and he loves back.
