Faced with frustration and numerous barriers while trying to adopt a child, Elgart knew there had to be a better way. In 1979 he formed The Golden Cradle, an adoption agency committed to better management and fairer treatment of adopting couples, birth mothers, and, of course, babies. This is actually two books in one--first it is Elgart's story of his trials and how he came to form The Golden Cradle; second it is a comprehensive step-by-step guide to adopting a child. The story Elgart relates is interesting and touching. His agency has grown from a one-man sideline business into a large nonprofit organization with 18 employees. Sections two and three address all questions and concerns faced by couples embarking on adoption. The appendixes include lists of suggested readings and resources. Elgart's warm, open style makes this book both informative and reassuring. Highly recommended.
