No adoptive family should be without Raising Adopted Children by Lois Melina, an internationally recognized authority on raising adopted children. In this classic parenting manual, Melina holds parentsí hands every step of the way, from announcing your adoption and choosing a pediatrician to bonding with your child, creating lifebooks, talking to children about adoption, dealing with grief, using positive adoption language, and even surviving the challenges of adolescence. Melina takes on more specialized topics as well, such as parenting children with disabilities, adopting transracially, single parenting, and raising large families. Other highly acclaimed books by Lois Melina include Making Sense of Adoption, and, with Sharon Kaplan Roszia, The Open Adoption Experience. She is a Research Fellow and Director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute as well as a regular columnist in Adoptive Families Magazine.
