Related by Adoption: A Handbook for Grandparents and Other Relatives

paperback    ISBN 13: 9781910039038 | ISBN 10: 1910039039

'Everybody should try to have a grandmother of grandfather or aunt or uncle, especially if they don't have television, because they are the only grown-ups who have spare time to spend with us.'
 
Grandparents and other relatives who become related by adoption can play an invaluable role in the life of the adopted child. When a child enters a new family with its own established lifestyle and ways of doing things - all of which could be overwhelming and confusing - grandparents and other relatives can help to guide the new child through what may seem to be an incomprehensible maze of values, standards and behaviours.
 
This handbook introduces grandparents-to-be and other relatives to information about adoption today. It offers facts about the children needing adoption, processes and procedures and, most importantly, discusses how the wider family can support and be involved in building a family through adoption.
 
Quotes and snippets from family stories add immediacy to this accessible and informative guide, which also includes a contribution from grandparents. If members of your family are considering adopting a child or children, this is the book for you!
