The lessons and real-life examples that you find in this book were forged in the ups and downs, laughter and tears, successes and failures of the last two decades. In these pages you will find an overview of the foster-adoption process, tips for working with state and legal entities, principles and approaches to adoptive parenting, real-life experiences that illustrate those principles, and techniques for effectively folding a child into your family.< Less
