This book was very helpful in learning about drug-exposed children: both adopted and non-adopted. It was an invaluable educational tool for my husband and me as we proceed with our adoption application.

Few books address this topic directly, and this documents what we knew then in a scholarly and research dense manner. But I think it minimizes the long term effects with labels that describe symptoms but not severity. Google search for available publications and find similar work is very scarce. I think largely because the elephant in the room of public adoptions is more like a scary dragon, but real. A better book is innocuously titled, the Mystery of Risk. What is known now is more extensive, and Chasnoff's writing is broader, simpler, and much more prescriptive. As a social worker in Post Aoption, in one of the largest public adoption agencies for over two decades, having had hundreds of extensive conversations with parents of these children, I hope more pay attention, and work towards early intervention.

I adopted two little boys who were both cocaine exposed in utero. This book compiles what's known about the effects of alcohol and drug exposed adopted kids. One of the best sources of information I found. It doesn't paint a pretty picture but it's not all bad news. A must read for those considering adopting foster kids.

A good introduction to the effects of various drugs on the unborn child. Particularly useful for lay-people like us who are looking at adoption where the mother may or may not have taken drugs or alcohol while pregnant.
