Each year, more and more China families are returning to their children’s birth country. For these families--and for anyone considering “going back”--From Home to Homeland is invaluable.
With contributions from Joyce Maguire Pavao, Jane Leidtke, Rose Lewis, and many others, this book offers tips on getting ready (chapters on travel medicine, preparing children, independent versus group travel). What’s more, it will guide you in creating connections in China and helping your child to process her experience after returning home. You’ll love the essays on visiting orphanages and foster families, and the gripping “been there” stories from adoptees.
