The Post Adoption Blues
Where do parents turn when the waited-for bonding with their adopted child is slow to form? When they find themselves grieving over the birth child they couldn't have? When the child they so eagerly welcomed into their home arrives with major, unexpected needs? Until now, adoptive parents have had to struggle silently with their feelings, which can range from flutters of anxiety to unbearable sadness. At last, Karen J. Foli, a registered nurse, and her husband, John R. Thompson, a psychiatrist, lift the curtain of secrecy from "Post Adoption Depression Syndrome" (PADS).

She Is Gold, A Romanian Adoption Story
In 1989, when then President Ceausescu was executed, the Romanian people were freed from one of the world's most opressive and backward dictatorships. Westerners became acutely aware of the approximately 100,000 abandoned and orphaned children who lived in horrific conditions in the orphanages of Romania. This book tells of one mother's struggle to adopt a needy Romanian child. She was faced with the difficulties of a language barrier, an unstable post-revolutionary government, foreign laws and customs and a lack of even the most basic of needs. Walk with her through the joys and sorrows and ultimately, the success of this inspiring mission to Romania. This book is one that you will not put down until you read it cover to cover!!! Everyone who has adopted internationally will love this journey and will be touched by the authors words.The author is donating a portion of the sales to our orphan project so please order, your order is greatly appreciated!

Cross-Cultural Adoption: How to Answer Questions from Family, Friends, and Community
Families who adopt children from other countries are faced with myriad questions­from friends, coworkers, family members, classmates, and caretakers alike. If left unanswered, these questions can spawn misunderstanding and hurtful remarks capable of shattering a vulnerable child’s sense of belonging: "She’s not my real cousin! She’s Chinese!" Drawing from their experiences as adoptive parents of foreign-born children, authors Caryn Abramowitz and Amy Coughlin give us Cross-Cultural Adoption, a unique guidebook to help relatives and friends of adoptive families address important questions before everyone gathers around the dinner table.
