Our adopted children come to us from loss–loss of a birth family, culture, and language. There are helpful things that we can do to address these issues, and Adoption Parenting helps you to create an awareness to do just that. We also look at stumbling blocks to good parenting, and standard parenting practices that aren’t right for adopted children.
The book looks at the core issues all members of the adoption triad face, and look at how that affects standard parenting challenges like sleeping through the night, discipline, and attachment. Adoption Parenting covers specific challenges families have faced: FASD, trauma and PTSD, sensory Integration, speech and language delays, and at ways to effectively parent a post-institutionalized child or a child who has experienced trauma in his or her journey to you.
