A practical guide to talking about adoption to a child adopted from overseas. It is essential that parents communicate openly with their adopted children, but discussing birth parents and background demands real courage and it can be difficult to know how and when to broach these subjects. This book explores what to tell children at different times in their lives, using example dialogue and suggested questions and answers. Written from the perspective of an adoptive parent, it also teaches parents how to recognise and handle their child's adoption-related grief.
