Hi there, I'm looking into finding out about adopting a child. I'm just putting the feelers out at the moment; enquiring about open days and researching. Could anyone point me towards any good books that could help as I'm looking into everything?

Thanks smile

Books by Sally Donovan, adoptive parent, easy to read and down to earth.

"But he looks so normal" by Sarah Nash.

I second the Sally Donovan books.

Try some of these. (Some with tissues, others with a pinch of salt IIRC.)

Just downloaded that Sarah Naish book and I am absolutely howling with laughter. Absolutely brilliant.

Yep, No Matter What by Sally Donovan is a great place to start. I haven't adopted but friends have so I read quite a few books and found this one in particular was great for understanding what's going on for them.

Yep both Sally Donovan Books are very good our social worker recommended both of them. Although I had already read The first one. I must try Sarah Naish book
