Guide and encourager for the immediate and extended family and for those who want to support them the Handbook on Thriving as an Adoptive Family succeeds at all these points.

I am not an adoptive parent but reading and reviewing this book has been a most pleasurable and profitable experience for me. Handbook on Thriving as an Adoptive Family is for all who want their horizons broadened. The individual memoirs included to illustrate the subjects will remain in your mind and heart for a long time.
