Description

Parents for Children tells the story of adoption through the real-life experiences of twelve families, many of whom have adopted older children or children with special needs. Two best-selling authors tell of their own experiences, with one chapter about Jilly Cooper and her adopted children, and another by writer Elizabeth Gundry. Through their own words, they share the joy and delight of adopting a child, as well as some of the obstacles and emotional frustrations that adoption can entail. And throughout these intensely personal stories the adopters show their determination to give the children - some affected by past abuse, some mentally or physically disabled - the home, hope and love that they so desperately need. Sometimes harrowing, often inspiring, always compassionate and moving, Parents for Children shows human nature's finest qualities at work. This book is published in association with 'Parents for Children', an adoption agency dedicated to finding adoptive parents for older children and those with special needs who might otherwise remain in care. 'Parents for Children' is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2001.show more
