The November 8th Adoption Book of the Day at Tapestry Books is ‘Adopting Older Children: A Practical Guide to Adopting and Parenting Children Over Age Four‘ by Stephanie Bosco-Ruggiero, Gloria Russo Wassail, and Victor Graza.
This book, which was published just over one year ago, is one of the best guides for adopting older children that exist in adoption literature today. This book dispels the many misconceptions and beliefs that often cause many prospective adoptive parents to stray away from older child adoption.
” This thorough guide enumerates the issues an older adopted child faces and provides a comprehensive overview of problems and how adopting parents can successfully deal with them, including critical information about developmental issues; problems related to the adoptee’s emerging sense of self, including sexual orientation and cultural identity; and other special needs that children may have.” (Back Cover Synopsis)
