This book is essentially different than the many books which have been written by the so-called “experts” on the subject of child rearing. Most experts tend to devise and then expound on their own theories and present parents with specific but untested rules to follow.
A “theory” says the dictionary, is: “A plan or theme existing in the mind only".
This book is based on 50 years of experience.
At age 22, the author set out to find her English birth parents, a Jewish father and a mother believed to be an artist. The adventure led to parents, grandparents, and siblings, a kaleidoscope of relationships with one dark secret at its center.
What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: An Adoptive Parent’s Perspective is a tender, revealing look at adoption from the parent perspective. Whether you are an adoptive parent, an adoptee, someone considering adoption, or simply curious about adoption dynamics, this book will touch your heart and increase your sensitivity to the challenges and joys that are unique to adoptive parenting.
