Most of us are well aware of the hardships, struggles, joys, and celebrations that parenting brings. Having a child, either through birth or through adoption, is a risk. Single parents and adoptive parents will have different and often additional needs as compared to a two-parent family with birth children. If you are in the decision making stage we hope this book will help you decide whether adopting as a single parent is right for you. If you have already adopted and are in the process of raising your child(ren), we hope this book will provide support and guidance for your family.
Sherry and Lee are the experts in the area of single parent adoption. They have studied the issue intensely, listened to both adoptees and parents, and most importantly they have lived it. This is an important book for all those impacted by single parent adoption.
