Adoption Corner

Cultural education is important for adoptive families. Internationally adopted children have special needs to understand, accept and explain their racial identity. In order to foster pride and self-esteem in themselves, they need to feel pride in their birthland and their personal history. This cultural education process is important in being able to explain one's heritage and answer with self-confidence the questions that international adoptees and their families face. We offer many materials that help your family and your children learn about cultures and languages as well as resources about adoption and teaching about adoption. Whether you are just starting out in the adoption process or have grown children, you'll be sure to find helpful materials about growing up as an Asian American, diversity, identity, heritage, biracial families, and the experiences of others who have adopted.

* Kids Like Me in China
In this first view of China adoption from a child's perspective, eight-year-old Ying Ying Fry returns to her orphanage to remember what it is like and to write a story so that other adopted children will understand where they came from. Kids Like Me in China combines real-life photos with the forthright observations and complex feelings of an adopted child as she meets caregivers and befriends children in the city where her life began. This book will inspire all adopted children to take charge of their own life stories. She wrote this book with help from her mom, Amy Klatzkin, a contributing editor to Adoptive Families magazine and the editor of A Passage to the Heart: Writings from Families with Children from China. This book will speak to your daughter's heart and help her feel a connection to her beginnings in China. --Review by Nancy Hope-Landon adoptive Mom of a 6-year old daughter. 2001

* The Best Single Mom in the World
My mom and I love to tell the story of how we became a family. Before I was born, my mom lived alone in our house. She loved her work and her friends, but something was missing--me! She wanted to share her life with a child who needed a family. My mom traveled the world--across the ocean and over the mountains--to meet me. We love to work and play together. Sometimes I wish we had a dad in our family, but my grandpa takes me special places, and my friend Nicky's dad is teaching us to play soccer. I'm glad my mom adopted me. She's the best mom in the whole wide world! Click here to Buy.
