Adoption Literature

Are you interested in adoption?

Are you curious about adoption?

Are you considering adoption?

How have I never written about the literature I recommend reading… I don’t know how I’ve gone through the last 2.5 years of posting about adoption, the process, our story, the difficulties, and never mentioned the books that I read.  I realized this when I recently posted about the books I read WITH the kids about adoption… I double checked the archives, and surprise!  Never written about the million books I’ve read in preparation.  Maybe I did on my old blog?  Hum…

Anyways, here are the books that I recommend.  These are just the ones I have read.  There are many more out there… But these are the ones that are on my shelf.
