"I strongly recommend this book to adoptive parents, adoption agencies, physicians, and anyone interested in the health and well-being of children adopted from other other countries." --Adoptive Families
"In an ambitious effort, Laurie Miller, one of the pioneers of international adoption medicine, takes on a wide range of challenges for international adoptees. The book's content provides sufficient depth and detail for the health care provider and practical advice for adoptive parents...Of all the sections, perhaps the most useful is the last, which addresses attachment, learning, and cultural and identity issues...The book is an excellent resource for adoptive parents, adoption professionals, and health care professionals. It fills a gap in the literature and is a welcome and much-needed resource."--New England Journal of Medicine
"This is an indispensable resource for physicians who provide care to these children and an important and fascinating read for all child advocates." --Doody's
