So we have been reading a few books about open adoption and wanted to share these titles with all of you. Not only are they wonderful books for pre-adoptive parents, but they are great primers for family and friends. Here is our list so far...
Raising Adopted Children by Lois Ruskai Melina
Real Parents, Real Children: Parenting the adoptive child by Holly van Gulden and Lisa Bartels-Rabb
Our agency recommends the following two books as well:
Making Room in our Hearts by Micky Duxbury
Inside Transracial Adoption by Gail Steinberg and Beth Hall
Finally, our favorite book so far, given to us by our friends that recently completed their adoption. We love this book and have read it several times and can't wait to read it to our little one!
Over the Moon: An Adoption Tale by Karen Katz
If anyone else has other good books about adoption and parenting please let us know!
