Now Available in Paperback, Adoption Beyond Borders endorses international adoption as a viable path to child welfare by exploring key topics including:
· Effects of institutionalization on children's developing brains, cognitive abilities, and socioemotional functioning
· Challenges of navigating issues of identity when adopting across national, cultural, and racial lines
· Strong emotional bonds that form even without genetic relatedness
· How adoptive families can address the special needs of children who experienced early neglect and deprivation, thereby providing a supportive environment in which to flourish
· Features the author's first-hand accounts of her own adoption journey as she visited a Kazakhstani orphanage daily for nearly a year, and illustrates the complexities and implications of the research evidence
