When I feel a need information on something, I am a reader. And investigator, self educator.
On that note can I just say it is hard to find current info on adoption at times? I am so glad I found this board, before this one I found some... most had outdated posts from 2004 or earlier that no one populates anymore. as for books I went to chapters (like a borders books) and could find almost nothing on adopting- so sad! I was able to purchase "The everything guide to adoption" and I also bought a really good book called Quirky Kids (my eldest son has Magic chromosomes) so that was a good read and may be applicable in the future.
So then I finally bit the bullet , splurged and ordered some books:
Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew
Attaching in Adoption:Practical Tools for Today's Parents
Our Own: Adopting and Parenting the older child
Adopting the Hurt Child:hope for Families with Special-Needs Kids Guide for Parents and Professionals
Parenting the Hurt Child: Helping Adoptive Families Heal and Grow
Any good books or Internet info you can recommend for me?
