The adoption resource book ebook

by Lois Gilman


Lois Gilman covers every type of adoption thoroughly and clearly. This book provides a solid overview of the adoption process. However, it was written a decade ago, and much of the information is now out-of-date.

Lois Gilman covers every type of adoption thoroughly and clearly. While she couldn't tell me exactly how my homestudy would go, I had a better idea after reading the section and was less concerned about it. She gives a wealth of information and is a must have for anyone who is thinking of adopting. For people considering international adoption, I'd recommend Dawn Davenport's book, The Complete Book of International Adoption. The two books are similar in content, but Davenport's is current.

If you can only afford one book on adoption, this is the book to buy. If you can afford many, this is the first book to purchase and read. Lois Gilman covers every type of adoption thoroughly and clearly. While she couldn't tell me exactly how my homestudy would go, I had a better idea after reading the section and was less concerned about it. She gives a wealth of information and is a must have for anyone who is thinking of adopting.

My husband and I found this a highly informative reference book that also has soul. In contrast, I found the Idiot's Guide to be insulting in its simplicity. To accompany this and other references, I recommend reading first-hand accounts of adoption, which focus on the emotional side. For example, in East Meets West, a father's story of going to China to meet and bring home his daughter, brought tears to my eyes--a wonderful reminder of why we want to head down this path.

I get dizzy just thinking about the amount of work that went into this resource! I like the fact that the author not only leads one through the myriad of steps toward adoption, but that she is also devoting chapters on parenting issues after the child comes home, and some important longer-term issues about raising an adoptive family. We adopted our daughter in 1969 and received neither pre- nor post-adoptive advice or help. I'm surprised we got through it all and that everything turned out well for us and our daughter. I am especially pleased that the author cautions adoptive parents not to tell their child that the birthmother gave him up because she loved him so much. I never told our daughter this either but rather the plain fact that there was no dad and the birthmother had no way of raising any child at this time of her life. Thank you, Lois, for your wonderful book.

We found this book to be the most comprehensive and informative book we read in preparing to adopt. We felt very prepared for all the paperwork, were able to ask questions we would not likely have even thought of on our own, and were able to make informed choices throughout the process. It is well written and speaks to the reader in a very clear manner. We no longer own our copy, as we have passed it on to a friend who is adopting. We would recommend this to everyone considering adoption. Adoption can be very confusing and stressful. This book armed us with the kind of information we needed to be prepared.

This book covers all aspects of the adoption process with clinical emphasis. It compares domestic and international adoptions. It compares agency vs. private adoptions. I think it is good to have the practical advice for successful adoptions but also, I recommend other books to learn about the affects of adoption on the triad members.

The author cites and recommends various times the writings of Gregory Keck and Hopkins-Best. These are proponents of Attachment (Holding) Therapy and the bogus "attachment disorder" (not to be confused with Reactive Attachment Disorder). Find a better source of information on child development and attachment than this book.

This is one of the books that you can say "Don't judge it by its cover". When you see it at first you could say "This is only for couples" but you will get wrong. It's excellent for couple adoptive parent like for single adoptive parent. It's very detailed, it even mention topics that not many adoption book covers. I highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for adoption either you are single or not.
Dear readers,
I felt that I needed to respond to the most recent review of my book on this site. I appreciate your commenting on the book -- its first edition appeared in 1984. Each time I revise and rewrite the book extensively. I wanted to note that for a reviewer to comment on the 1987 book and to state that the information was incorrect seemed an unfair manner to review this book. The anecdote about Ecuador was indeed based on a real person who adopted more than 20 years ago ( and whose experience was correct for the time when that person adopted). It is, however, long gone from The Adoption Resource Book. Please see for yourself -- and make your own judgments -- as to the content of my book. Many thanks.
