Shared Fate has become a classic. Continuing to challenge a pervasive mystique about adoption, the important second edition belongs in every library and with every adoptive family. Based on research with more than 2,000 families, this pioneering work on modern adoption emphasizes open communication as the key to successful resolution of the adoptive family's unique role and tasks. Its findings have stood the test of time. Although new forms of adoption have emerged and become numerically dominant, the book's findings remain pertinent.
