About parenting an adopted child.

Today I was lent a book "Adoption Parenting - Creating a Toolbox, Building Connections", a book contributed to and written by parents of adoptive children and various other persons experienced in this area.

I'm at page 31 and I can honestly say that this is a fantastic book providing wonderful insights into approaching different issues that each child may struggle with.

It gives clear, concise variations for handling each kind of situation you may face with your adopted child and even, if you please, your bio child.

Needless to say, I think I'll read this one cover to cover many times over in preparation for our own child. We certainly have plenty of time!
