Toddler/Older Child Adoption

  • Toddler Adoption: The Weaver's Craft by Mary Hopkins-Best. Great information. The author was interviewed on the Creating a Family radio show.
  • Siblings in Adoption and Foster Care: Traumatic Separations and Honored Connections by Deborah N. Silverstein and Susan Livingston Smith- This book is a comprehensive resource on issues facing siblings during foster care or adoption- both biological and adopted.
  • Our Own: Adopting and Parenting the Older Child by Trish Maskew
  • Adopting the Older Child by Claudia L. Jewett- Written in 1979 but still relevant.
  • Adopting a Toddler: What Size Shoes Does She Wear? by Denise Harris Hoppenhauer-  Offers great insight and practical advice for those preparing to adopt a toddler.
  • Nurturing Adoptions - Creating Resilience after Neglect and Trauma by Deborah Gray-  Anything by Deborah Gray is great.  On our show she said this book was primarily written for adoption professionals, but I think adoptive parents will find a lot of useful information as well.
  • The Connected Child: Bring Hope and Healing to Your Adoptive Family by Karyn B. Purvis, David R. Cross, and Wendy Lyons Sunshine
  • Parenting Your Older Adopted Child By Brenda McCreight- Good overview!
  • Another Place at the Table by Kathy Harrison- I loved this book. It is the true life tale of one foster family and is very well written. I couldn't put it down.
