Whether a child joins a family through domestic adoption, international adoption, or foster care, he or she may have needs that require special consideration. This comprehensive resource offers trusted parenting advice from a leading adoption medicine expert and the American Academy of Pediatrics, focusing on the physical and emotional well-being of children. The coauthors, both adoptive parents, weave professional and personal experiences with essential information on

  • Partnering with a pediatrician before adoption
  • Helping a child transition into a family
  • Understanding health issues and conditions that are more prevalent in children who are adopted
  • Supporting a child’s emotional health and attachment
  • Promoting positive adoption conversation as a child matures

With knowledge and compassion, Dr. Schulte and Robin Michaelson offer the wisdom that adoptive parents need to provide the best possible care for their children.
