National Adoption Awareness Month Part 4 (MUST have adoption books)

While we were waiting to travel to China, I purchased a zillion books on adoption. I poured over them and thought I was well prepared for everything that came my way. The former librarian in me, couldn't stop researching and reading. Since returning home, I've found myself going back through them for a second time. I have certain chapters dog-eared...night terrors, eating issues and attachment.

As Christmas approaches and my family starts asking for gift ideas, I'd love to know what are some of YOUR favorite adoption books.

Silent Tears is available on Amazon. It's an incredible book. A definite must read in my opinion. Here's a link to the author's blog:

Such a sweet new banner. Beautiful girls :D

My two favorites are The Waiting Child, by Cindy Champnella. I've read it at least 4 times. Silent Tears, by Kay Bratt. I've only read it once.....too hard to read over and over. Those top my list of "must reads".

Great post Kim!! I can't wait to see if any books I haven't read on adoption show up :D
