Twenty Things Adoptive Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew


Product Description:

For those of us who have an adopted child, it is crucial that we understand what the adoption process means to the adoptee. Sherrie's book warmly compels us to do just that.

"Sherrie Eldridge has opened my eyes widely to the unique needs of my daughter and how to meet them." STEVE ARTERBURN, Founder of New Life Clinics and Women of Faith, author of many best-selling books including The Seven-Minute Marriage Solution.

"So many questions about adoption remain unspoken, leaving children and parents paralysed with confusion. Sherrie Eldridge gives voice to these questions as well as answers, offering hope and help. --ELISA MORGAN, President of MOPS International

"Here at last is a book adoptive parents have been waiting for. Author Sherrie Eldridge has reached into her own experience s an adoptee and comes forth with twenty important issues that adoptive parents need to know in order to effectively parent their adopted children. A book all adoptive parents should read!" NANCY VERRIER, MSW, author of The Primal Wound, Coming Home to Self

Keep up the great work, as your book is more insightful and valuable than any the professionals have written." MARK HENDERSON, Scottsdale, Arizona

Sherrie has thrown the light of appreciation and understanding on the unique issues that often lie buried in the corners of adoptees' lives. -- Foster W. Cline, M.D., internationally acclaimed child and adult psychiatrist and co-author of PARENTING WITH LOVE AND LOGIC

What a useful book! Sherrie Eldridge has illuminated many issues adoptees and adoptive families face. Many books have addressed problems in adoption, but Eldridge tackles the real villain: unresolved loss and grief issues and the trauma that precedes all adoptions. [This book] is a gift to everyone involved in adoption. Eldridge's personal disclosures add a level of warmth and genuineness and yet do not overshadow her message but rather focus and heighten it. -- Gregory C. Keck, Ph.D., founder/director of the Attachment and Bonding Centre of Ohio and co-author of ADOPTING THE HURT CHILD
