    I would like to learn more about the issue you face when you adopt an older child and if the issues differ between domestic and internationally adopting.

    How adoption has touched my life: Morgan is our IUI miracle baby. The chances of having her were very slim. I was only willing to do IUI (no IVF) and only one round. After that we were going to adopt. I was 100% mentally ready to go this route. We were blessed with our daughter, but I still feel in my heart that there is another child out that is supposed to be mine. In the next couple of years, we plan on adopting an older (over 5) child.

    What I would like to learn more about are the rights of relatives post adoption,our adopted daughter was contacted by her ex-step father,an that stirred up a bunch of bad memories for her,an he didnt understand that he had NO rights,what a mess,we adopted her as a teenager but we have had her as a foster daughter since the age of 12,an she was in the system since age 7,so where has he been? Prison! her younger bioliogal sister is his daughter,not mine!

    Adoption has touched my life in so many ways,our daughter was #6 for us,all our other children were grown an gone an we had empty nest an knew we had more to give ,so we started foster care for tween age girls that are usually the hardest to place,we ended up adopting the first one we got!Couldnt send her back ,no way!She deserved a chance to be safe a loved,an she is ,she is now a Junior in high school an making good grades,an goes to church,my son was so impressed with our experience that he is now taking foster parent classes to adopt his own child,so this book would be great for us an him,adopting older children is so much different than a infant,it takes longer to bond an for them to trust again,they have been hurt too many times by adults who were supposed to take care of them but didnt,thanks for the chance an bringing up the adoption issue

    My mom was adopted and I cannot have my own children, so adoption is a big part of my life.

    I am adopted, and I am getting my MSW to work as an adoption specialist. I’m especially interested in attachment issues and behavioral problems commonly presented in older adoptees, but I need to be aware of and knowledgeable about all aspects of the realities of adoption

    I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS GIVEAWAY!!! What I want to know most about adoption is how to tell the child about the adoption. I feel like this is very painful for the child and I would definitely need some coaching in it! Thanks! –Michelle, blogattoday (~=at} gmaildotcom

    I wrote my thesis on international adoption. I was privileged to sit down with 10 families for 3 hours each and hear about their journey!! This was amazing and hopeful, and it’s the reason why my husband and I are saving money for our own international adoption!!!!!!!!!!! –Michelle, blogattoday (~=at} gmaildotcom
