"What do my birth parents look like?" "Did I do something wrong?" "Why are so many Chinese girls put up for adoption?" Adoption expert, Beth O'Malley, provides you with an excellent tool that helps you answer these and other sometimes awkward questions. With fill-in-the blank questions, places for artwork, checklists and adoption homework; you and your child can work through the issues specific to being an adoptee from China.
Convenient cardstock pages take you step-by-step through your child's history in China, explaining about his/her biological parents, the adoption process and more. When your child asks questions, it opens the door for communication. That's one of the most important benefits of this lifebook.
Heavy-weight pages are punched for use in 3-ring binder. This gives you the freedom to personalize as needed. ( binder not included)

About the Author:

Beth O'Malley is an adoptee, adoptive mom and professional in the field of adoption. With a Masters in Counseling, Beth relies on her instincts and experiences as an adult adoptee as much as her skill when preparing foster children for adoption. In 2000, she wrote Lifebooks: Creating a Treasure for the Adopted Child. This book has helped thousands of parents and children connect and successfully work through the issues of adoption including understanding why kids don't live with their biological families. Beth's latest work, My China Lifebook, offers parents and children adopted from China new ways to talk about their inner concerns and build upon their attachment to their family.

Mom to Lily age 5, adopted from China

"I have seen a confidence in Sara since we've done this workbook that I have never seen before. It seems like a big puzzle piece was just put into place for her. This was a real breakthrough." --Fran Zabawa (mother to Sarah age 9 from YiYang)
