If you are considering adopting a child from overseas, this book is for you. It outlines the history of inter-country adoption in Australia, and the processes families have to go through to adopt. It gives you facts, figures and statistics and is a great resource for anyone who wants to know more about adoption - particularly for families considering inter-country adoption, and for people who work in the adoption or child welfare fields generally. It also describes the main health, social and psychological issues that children will face and offers expert advice on how best to manage them. There are also personal stories, which are heart-warming, inspiring and sometimes confronting.

Author Biography

Lucy Burns is a parent of two children adopted from overseas. She found there was very little information or support available in the form of books, especially after returning from overseas with her children. She has been strongly involved in the adoptive parent support group (ASIAC NSW) and became president for three years.
