About

From the Publisher

Intercountry adoption is the most common form of adoption in Australia. This wonderful book looks not only at the processes involved in adopting a child from other countries into Australian families but also includes the findings of the largest survey of adoptive parents in Australia. The information they share with us and their personal experiences are heartwarming, inspiring, and sometimes confrontingbut regardless, the stories always make for compelling reading. Adopting Overseas offers both expert advise and personal accounts on how best to manage a range of issues that some adoptive families will face such as: Why choose intercountry adoption? and Will our child attach to us? It also covers tantrums and how to manage them; anxiety about being abandoned; health issues such as skin, teeth, delayed growth, and motor development; behavioral/psychological issues; the importance of finding out about your child’s background and keeping the birth culture alive; and racism. The authors are donating their royalties from the sales of this book to overseas aid for children.
