The Complete Book of International Adoption: A Step by Step Guide to Finding Your Child

Customer Reviews:

Review from RainbowKids.com

By V. Garcia-mendoza "poet/ writer" - December 7, 2006

When my husband and I started our adoption journey, there were a lot of books about international adoption we didn't buy. This is a major statement from two book lovers, but a true one. It seemed that the majority of the books on the adoption bookshelves were either too negative (focusing solely on the challenges of parenting a child through adoption), too shallow (treating Guatemalan adoption the same as Russian adoption) or just too dry (and when you're in the middle of paper-chasing, you need a real page turner to keep you going). So we went against our nature and mined other resources in order to become educated and bolstered throughout the process. Our minds expanded with new information, though our nightstands lacked the expected adoption reading.

My nightstand void remained until I received Dawn Davenport's The Complete Book of International Adoption: A Step-by-Step Guide to Finding Your Child (Broadway Books) to review. Having been in the process with either our... read more

Highly Recommended!

By J. Hodgin - January 30, 2007

This is by far the best book on international adoption out there and
I've looked at plenty. Actually, this book is for anyone thinking
about any form of adoption because it has a great and succinct
discussion and comparison of all forms of adoption. Although the book
goes on to a thorough coverage of international adoption, Davenport is
clear that all forms of adoption should be considered and there is no
one type of adoption that is best for everyone.

I love Davenport's thoroughness and her compassion for parents and
kids. The book covers everything a prospective parent needs to think
about, but Davenport is nonjudgmental about many of the choices parent
will have to make. With each choice she urges parents to be honest
with themselves and to put the interest of the child first.

Because we are at the beginning stages of considering adoption, I
found the first couple of chapters most helpful: are we ready... read more

Everything you need to know- and entertaining!

By Meegan - February 17, 2007

Davenport's book claims to provide a step-by-step guide, and she succeeds with humor and honesty. The book offers an overview that I found useful in an initial cover-to-cover reading, and enough specifics in the chapters that as I'm completing the paper chase, I find myself going back to re-read. Some adoption books emphasize the risks so much that they're unreadable, and some gloss over the risks so much that they're unrealistic. Davenport finds the right tone by presenting the experiences of many adoptive families at the end of each chapter, offering a balanced viewpoint of each step in the process. Her suggestions are concrete, her information is accurate, and her resources are useful. All in all, the best book I've found.
