Format: Paperback
I bought this book as my parents wanted to find out what they could do to support my husband and I through the adoption process. Since buying a copy for them I have been back and bought another 6 copies for all our relatives and closest friends, as it's relevant to anyone who will be involved in the life of the children we adopt.

It would be good to go into a bit more depth on some topics, but as an introduction it's great, and will give the people we are closest to a good appreciation for the process we are going through, but more importantly for the kind of issues that the children we adopt may face, and what role they can play in their lives.

With 3 sets of assorted parents all obviously concerned that their lives are going to be hugely impacted by our starting the adoption process, this book has been ideal as a way to offer them an insight into the process and how it will affect them.
Having read it myself first I found it clear and covered all the basics in an honest but reassuring manner. It isn't as in depth as I am sure other books would be, and I think therefore the price includes a mark up for BAAF's fundraising department. But it gives them enough of a flavour to feel confident of where to go next in their reading. This is important as the formal adoption process offers relatives no training or preparation despite their input being huge!

A mine of useful information/helpful hints for anyone about to be involved in the potentially complex but highly rewarding process of adoption.

Format: Paperback
As new adoptive grandparents, this book was very helpful in helping us to look at issues from the children's point of view. I particularly appreciated the reminder that their 'history' as they come into the family could be recorded and could help root them securely as they grow. It is written in a friendly and accessible way. The book is very useful for aunts, uncles and cousins and all the wider family.

I found this book very informative and helpful as our daughter and son-in-law have recently gone through the adoption process. It will help us in our understanding of the adjustment needed for our new little grandchild and our relationship with the family. I can recommend it.

Format: Paperback
We are at the start of the adoption process, but wanted to keep our parents involved as to what it entails. This book is great - not intense or particularly indepth, but a good introduction to adoption, the role of other relatives and the issues that adopted children may face.

Mum read it within a day or two, and fed back that she had found it really useful, and particularly liked the case studies. It has also meant that our parents genuinely feel involved in our adoption journey.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. As our adopted child will have 4 sets of grandparents, I bought a copy for all of them. It's written in a very straight forward way and just gives other family members more insight into the adoption process, but also advises them on how they can support the parents and how they should act with the child. Would thoroughly recommend all of the BAAF books like this one.
