I like the Christian slant and the accompanying scriptures throughout, but if you wouldn't, don't buy it. I also like the way the author compares adopting a child to God adopting us in His family. We may not be the easiest people in the world to deal with, but He dealt with us and, if called, we should deal with the process of adopting and our child's particular needs.
This book cover "domestic adoption" (of a baby, within the USA), international adoption (of babies or children), and adoption of waiting children (in state protective custody.) I was happy to see it covered all three processes, though, with waiting children, there wasn't a lot of information because the rules vary so much from state to state. In the back, there are very helpful lists of resources (websites for more info, grants/loans for financing an adoption, organizations for support, etc) and also sample documents including a complete home study sample. (I was very curious to find out what a home study looks like!)
This would be an excellent book to start with, if you or someone you know are considering or even thinking about adoption. It would be helpful not only to someone considering it themselves, but also to friends and family of someone adopting. I'm going to give this book to our public library so other people can benefit from it! :)
