The Whole Life Adoption Book was required reading by our adoption agency. It contains a lot of good information on adoption for all different types including: domestic, international, foster-care, birth, older child, etc.
While we will keep the book because of some good sections we can use for reference, I felt that the majority of the stories and examples came from the same families or always related to adopting a child at birth. Some other items are never addressed in the book such as: Cost, CPS' role, process of adoption (international, private, or foster-care), etc.
I know the author wanted to keep the book to a manageable length and the items that are missing can vary in each state, country, and situation, but more information could definitely be given.
