Adoption Related Readings

An adoptive Momma and blogger, Rachel, has an Amazon shop called Rachel's Sugary Sweet Suggestions with recommended adoption books for both adults and children. Trust me, I wish this would have been available when we were placed with our children almost two years ago. During our wait, I passed the time by reading as much as possible about adoption, specifically older kid adoptions. I also found a handful of adoption related children's books and purchased them too. To this date, we periodically read adoption books to the kids. This is a great way to open the door to questions and dialogue they may not feel comfortable addressing on their own free will. Also, the idea is that if we read and talk about it from time to time, they will feel comfortable approaching us when they get to that age when they really do have questions. So please check out her adoption blog, Brown Sugar, White Sugar and her book suggestions.

Unfortunately, Blogger is not cooperating today and will not let me insert a hyperlink to her blog or book list. Therefore, you will have to copy and paste the address into your web browser.
