About this item

Whether a child joins a new family through domestic adoption, international adoption, or foster care, he or she may have needs that require special consideration. This comprehensive resource offers trusted parenting advice for all adoption situations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, with a focus on the mental and physical wellbeing of the children. The coauthors, both adoptive parents, weave their personal experiences with essential information on: preparing a child to join a family, coping with the changes adoption brings for a new child and other family members, partnering with a pediatrician before adoption, dealing with health issues and conditions more prevalent in children who are adopted, fostering a child's emotional health and encouraging attachment, and talking about adoption.
