Summary
Are you thinking of adopting an older child? There are 200,000 plus hoping for families in the U.S. alone and more worldwide. Adopting an older child, though, presents a unique set of parenting issues as well as rewards. Adopting Older Children highlights the most significant challenges when parenting older adoptees who face mental health, behavioral and educational issues. Included is critical information about developmental issues that may arise for the adoptee, issues related to the adoptee's emerging sense of self, sexual orientation and cultural identity and other special needs that an adoptee may have. -- back cover
