There have been several post with some very good questions about the adoption process. Adoption is a very emotional, expensive and stressful process so I encourge everyone to network and do as much research as possible. I have a list of several books I used during the process which I found extremely helpful. I have listed them below. I encourge others to add to my list.
"The Complete Book of International Adoption" (2006) by Dawn Davenport. (This book was very helpful through the whole process including with the adjustment when we arrived home with our new son.
"RISK AND PROMISE a handbook for parents adopting a child from overseas" (2006) by Ira J Chasnoff et al.
"The Adoption Resources Book 4th edition" (1998) by Lois Gilman
"Adoption Parenting" (2006) by Jean MacLeod.
