Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

As both an adoptee and president of Jewel Among Jewels Adoption Network, Eldridge brings an original approach to the topic of adoption. In an attempt to inform adoptive parents of the unique issues adoptees face, she discusses adoptee anger, mourning, and shame and adoption acknowledgment while using case studies to illustrate how parents can better relate to their adopted child. This book is solidly written but not without its flaws; most importantly, it lacks information concerning child development, e.g., whether parents should use the same approach to questions with a three-year-old as with a 14-year-old. Still, this book will go well in any collection dealing with adoption, complementing David M. Brodzinsky's Being Adopted: The Lifelong Search for Self (Anchor, 1993) and Joyce Maguire Pavao's The Family of Adoption (Beacon, 1998).AMee-Len Hom, Hunter Coll. Lib., New York

 "This is the book I've been waiting for!  For those of us who have an adopted child, itis crucial that we understand what the adoption process means to theadoptee.  Sherrie's book warmly compelsus to do just that.  This informationwill be enormously beneficial to parents who want and need to embrace the heartconcerns of their adopted child."
STEVE ARTERBURN, Founder of New Life Clinics and Women of Faith, author

Gleaning from her own life experience and theexpertise of many other mental health and adoption professionals, Eldridgemakes a significant and meaningful contribution to the literature in the fieldof adoption."
 JAYNE E. SCHOOLER, author of TheWhole-Life Adoption Book, Searching for a Past,  and Mystery History, trainer for theOhio Child Welfare Training Program
 "Here at last is a book adoptive parents have beenwaiting for.  Author Sherrie Eldridge gently educatesparents about the fears that adoptees harbor, both about their heritage (whichis often a secret) and about their security in their adoptive families. A book all adoptive parents should read!
 NANCY VERRIER, adoptivemother, therapist, author of The Primal Wound: Understanding the AdoptedChild
