Featured Must-Read

Ron Nydam, PhD has launched a new book for adoptive parents, but written from a perspective that outlines essential values necessary to affirm adoptees and birth/first parents.  Nydam's first book, Adoptees Come of Age, has been described by some adoptees as a life-changing work they refer to over and over.  The new title, Wise Adoptive Parenting: When Kids Struggle to Adopt Their Parents,  takes a broader view that serves to validate the varied challenges encountered from each viewpoint.         


The list of blogs written by people "touched" by adoption, and foster care and assisted reproduction is substantial.  Here are a few that are widely recognized as exceptional:
