The Whole Life Adoption Book was required reading by our adoption agency. It contains a lot of good information on adoption for all different types including: domestic, international, foster-care, birth, older child, etc.

While we will keep the book because of some good sections we can use for reference, I felt that the majority of the stories and examples came from the same families or always related to adopting a child at birth. Some other items are never addressed in the book such as: Cost, CPS' role, process of adoption (international, private, or foster-care), etc.

I know the author wanted to keep the book to a manageable length and the items that are missing can vary in each state, country, and situation, but more information could definitely be given.

If you are considering older child adoption - from U.S. foster care, an international orphanage, or even your own family, please read this book. It gives a great outline of what to think about before choosing adoption- what kind of adoption, what kind of child, and what kind of agency - is a good fit for your family. Also positive suggestions on how to explain adoption to your family before adopting and to your community after adopting and to your children throughout the entire process.
This book seemed very "overview"; while there were good suggestions, I'd like to read more detailed information about many of the topics.
The book seemed to focus on adoption of older children, which might seem more unusual to your family or community. There was also a lot of talk about adopting a child after already having biological or adopted children in your home.
While the book is published by a Christian company, and does reference some Christian ideas (explaining adoption to your child's sunday school teacher, explaining to your child that we are all children of God) it's not a religiously focused book. Any adoptive family can learn from it.

I believe this book is a great resource for any adoptive parent, however, the book seems to be more for domestic adoption rather than international adoption. This is especially true of the chapter "Searching for a Past: Why adopted Children Seek Their Roots and How Parents Can Respond". My issue is that since my daughter is adopted from China there is absolutely no way that I can help her find out anything about her birth parents. In China, babies are abandoned. Birth parents do not have the option to take a child to the proper autorities to be placed for adoption, they do not get to make an adoption plan. Due to governmental restrictions birth parents are prohibited from doing these things. So what do I tell my daughter when she wants to find her birth parents? I was hoping for some direction in this book but found none. Also, the section on how to explain Abandonment does not work for children adopted from China because that is never how it happens there. This book is an excellent resource for parents adopting domestically and was helpful in explaining things that all adopted children will go through regardless of when they were adopted.

Great resource - full of perspective for anyone considering to adopt.

Everyone likes a well stocked tool box.
You know those pliers or wrenches that you may only need one time a year or less but you should have on stock just in case.

this is that toolbox for adoptive families or relatives.
Everything is covered in a very consise way in order to give you a perfect and easy to use refence book to come back to when you have a need or an issues arises.

This title is clearly one of the better adoption resource books on the market. It contains a large amount of practical yet thoughtful advice and brings to the attention of adoptive (or potential adoptive) parent considerations that clearly are appropriate but that may not have been obvious before reading the book. The first section of the book clearly would benefit prospective adoptive parents as they work through a myriad of issues before and during the adoption process.
Hra
This book gives a very good idea and understanding of what you will experience during the adoption process. A must read for those going through it or even considering it.
It is an easy yet affirming book to read. We are going through the adoption process now and this book was very insightful.
