The challenging teen years can be even more difficult for adopted teenagers, many of whom have unanswered questions that may result in fear, anger, and low self-esteem. These feelings may be compounded by the isolation they feel because most friends and family members cannot fully relate to their situation.

Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide enables young adults to explore their feelings as they read about the personal experiences of other adopted teens. Through these stories, adopted teens can learn how others have resolved some of their adoption issues and gain powerful insights from those who have experienced some of the same frustrations, struggles, and concerns.

This book addresses various issues such as:

  • finding out you’ve been adopted
  • fitting in
  • searching for birth parents
  • meeting birth parents
  • international adoption
  • transracial adoption
  • what defines a family

This revised edition also features discussion questions at the end of each chapter that help teens and loved ones acknowledge and verbalize their concerns. With up-to-date statistics, as well as insights from experienced adoption professionals who offer practical advice, this edition of Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide is a valuable resource for adopted teens as well as their families and friends.

From the Publisher:

The search for one's self during the challenging teen years can be even more difficult for the adopted teen who may have many unanswered questions related to the adoption; questions that provoke fear, anger, low self-esteem, and many other emotions. These feelings are compounded by the isolation that adopted teens feel because most of their friends and family members cannot fully relate to their insecurities, fears, and frustration.

Adopted: The Ultimate Teen Guide enables young adults to explore their feelings as they read about the personal experiences of others. Through these stories, adopted teens will realize that there are other teens who share their same struggles and concerns. They also learn how teens found ways to resolve some of their adoption issues. Furthering the usefulness of the book is a section where various adopted teens ask questions on topics such as why birthparents place their children for adoption, how to "fit in" with an adoptive family, how to find birth parents, how to prepare to meet birth parents, current laws regarding adoption and the rights of adopted teens, special issues relating to international and transracial adoptions, and the problems teens face when they are adopted by a stepparent. These questions are answered in the book by experienced adoption and legal professionals. Replete with stories, pictures, and artwork by adopted teens, this up-to-date source will benefit adopted teens so they can move on to stable and happy lives as adults.
