Adoption Beyond Borders

Adoption Beyond Borders: How International Adoption Benefits Children

This book was written like a university dissertation with a clear and concise argument to the benefits of adoption from a different country to your origin. This book is heavily referenced to show research and supporting evidence to the benefits. It also includes the authors own story of the process of adopting a child from a different country.

The decision to adopt a child may be different in each case however it is important to look at the options that are available. Although this book is written to encourage adoption from different countries I feel it would be beneficial to anyone wanting to adopt a child. It is a very interesting read and if you are curious about adoption I would recommend this book to you.  

International adoptions have decreased in numbers in the last ten years even though there is evidence to supports the benefits. This book looks at the social and biological elements including psychology, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, sociology, anthropology and social work. 

 5 stars out of 5.
