By law, all adoption agencies should provide adopted children - and children with a best interest decision of adoption - with a guide to adoption. This illustrated, interactive guide is for professionals and adoptive parents to give information and explanation to children under the age of 8; older children with learning difficulties or conceptualisation problems. Child friendly, it uses age appropriate language to explain the complexities of the reasons for their separation from birth families and the decision for them to be adopted. It also encourages children to question, seek answers and reveal their wishes and feelings. A cartoon character talks with the child through the text. A child himself, who has been through the process of being looked after in temporary care, being placed for adoption and then adopted, his experience offers a wide spectrum of likely experiences, feelings and scenarios, and thereby highlights significant issues. Fun, as well as helpful with what children most want to know and what most concerns them, this book helps children escape from feelings of blame and guilt, and rewards them with lots of praise. Adults undertaking the task of informing and explaining will find the book more than helpful.
