9781440194368: What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: An Adoptive Parent's Perspective

What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: An Adoptive Parent's Perspective is a tender, revealing look at adoption from the parent perspective. Whether you are an adoptive parent, an adoptee, someone considering adoption, or simply curious about adoption dynamics, What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: An Adoptive Parent's Perspective will touch your heart and increase your sensitivity to the challenges and joys that are unique to adoptive parenting.

Bacchetta wrote the book in response to a need common among adoptive families. "Adoptive families navigate emotional terrain that fully-biological families don't have to. This is a book adoptive parents can give to their child and say, 'I know adoption is painful, unsettling, joyous, and affirming. It's that way for me too. More than anything, adoption is the way we came together, and I'll always be grateful for that.'"

Bacchetta's words echo with the collective voice of over 100 adoptive parents interviewed for this book. With chapters like "I Would Do it All Again", "You Are Not Different Because You Were Adopted," and "I Regret What I Can't Give You," What I Want My Adopted Child to Know is by turns affirming, challenging, thoughtful, wistful, and poignant.

About the Author:

Sally Bacchetta is an award-winning writer and twice-adoptive parent. She draws on her educational and professional background in psychology and counseling to illuminate the private thoughts of adoptive parents with sensitivity and startling honesty. Bacchetta is the Rochester Adoptive Families Examiner and her articles have appeared in national and local publications including Genesee Valley Parent magazine. She is currently working on her second book about adoption. Bacchetta is a native of Florida who now lives in upstate New York with her husband and children. (edited by author)

Review:

Sally has written a narrative which is heartfelt, honest and warm. She's told her story truthfully and without sugar coating, but also with knowledge from which I would have benefitted had the book been written before my family embarked upon our own journey to adoption. I can identify with Sally's story--I have seen it repeated over and over again--with my friends, with my clients, and my family. And we adoptive families have all traveled the same paths about which Sally has written so eloquently and emotionally.
-- Greg Franklin, Esq., Fellow of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys --Foreword excerpt (added by author)
