Library Journal Review

Individuals desiring to adopt children from other countries will find this book extremely valuable. As parents of three adopted Colombian children and founders of the nonprofit adoption agency Los Ni$os International, Nelson-Erichsen and Erichsen well understand the adoption process on both personal and professional levels. They have broken down the international adoption process into 23 detailed, easy-to-follow steps, from selecting an agency to adapting to life with an adopted child. The adoption laws of 86 child-placing countries, samples of required documents, the approximate costs of international adoption, and the health concerns of Third World orphans are covered, and the web sites of foreign embassies and parent support groups are listed. The reader must keep in mind that this type of information changes constantly. Nevertheless, this is an outstanding source for public libraries and special libraries dealing with adoption.DMee-Lee Hom, Hunter Coll. Lib., New York (c) Copyright 2010.
