A few weeks ago I started in on the list of recommended and required reading provided to us by our adoption agency. The second book from the list I read was Raising Adopted Children by Lois Melina. The copy I had was from 1982 (I think!), so some of the information was a bit outdated, especially since open adoptions were just coming into vogue at that time.
I thought the book was very informative and provided information on different topics such as health care and others that I wouldn't have thought of being different for adopted children. It was a quick and easy read! I would recommend checking it out, especially if you are new to adoption or just curious about the differences that may arise when raising adopted children. There is a revised edition that was published in 1998 that is probably more up-to-date.
I'm currently reading Adopting After Infertility by Patricia Irwin Johnston and Dear Birthmother: Thank You For Our Baby by Kathleen Silber. I'll post reviews of those books when I am finished!
