Description: From Bill Clinton to James Michener, adoption works, say the coauthors of this expert and refreshingly candid guide. The question for prospective parents is not "Can we find a child to adopt?" They can. The question is "Can we do our adoption right?" With the help of this practical book, yes, they can.

Based on a landmark guide by Dr. Martin, Beating the Adoption Odds gives aspiring parents the courage and know-how to take charge of the adoption process. The coauthors are uniquely qualified to prepare hopeful parents psychologically for the often-frustrating experience of the adoption process, offering their firsthand perspectives as adoptive parent, adoptee, and professionals working in the adoption field.

Thoroughly discussed in a user-friendly format are the prospects and pitfalls of agency adoptions, international adoptions, and private adoptions; innovative strategies for finding children to adopt and for expediting adoption procedures; and many other issues facing adopters, such as the rights of a birth family, options for special parents, and medical risks. Also included are extensive bibliographies, sample letters and resumes, a home study, and adoption resources.

Comprehensive, authoritative, and proactive, Beating the Adoption Odds is the indispensable manual for both those considering adoption and those working in the adoption field.
