This is a brilliant book that I truly recommend to adopters/prospective adopters or for people who are considering adoption and for the family and friends of anybody who is adopting.
This book covers everything about the adoption process from the very beginning, explaining the authors reasons for wanting to adopt and making the initial phone call to the adoption agency. it continues right the way through their adoption journey, answering the numerous questions that I had about adopting and what its really like to go through the adoption process.
Its written so beautifully by a lady who has recently adopted two little girls and we found this book to be so much more interesting, relevant and appropriate and enjoyable than the many text books we have read about adoption.
The author writes about all of the key events throughout the adoption process, including the home study and assessment, adoption preparation group, the PAR report, social worker visits and my burning question - What is Adoption Panel really like and is it as scary as it sounds?!!!
Its a heart warming and emotional book that tells about the authors wait to be matched with her daughters, Matching Panel, life appreciation day and all about the introductions with her daughters. It explains about how her daughters reacted to their new mummy and Daddy, new home and environment and how they coped with meeting their new wider family and friends. It gives good advice and strategies about bonding and attachment, building trust and security through to their adoption hearing and celebration day in court.
The book talks about life story work and how they overcame hurdles and problems in the early days and how they settled and became a really happy family, enjoying 'normal' everyday family life.

The book is such an interesting read for anyone who has thoughts about adopting. It takes you through the process as prospective adoptive parents, in an easy to read, friendly way. The hoops this family had to go through amazes me and I admire their determination to keep carrying on through such adversity. It is a heartwarming story, made all the more emotional because it is true.

I am pleased to say that this book really helped to educate our family and friends too and they are much more supportive and understanding of what we are going through now.I Cant recommend this book enough - AMAZING
