Hi!  I’m Joy and I’m writing about adoption for 31 days in October.  If you are new, start HERE.

We have a few books on adoption that we love.  I’m sure there are many more available, so if you don’t see one here, please tell us about it in the comments!

All about Adoption: How Families Are Made & How Kids Feel about It

The Connected Child: Bring Hope and Healing to Your Adoptive Family

Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families and Churches (Updated and Expanded Edition)


Here are some books recommended by friends of mine who are foster/adoptive mamas:

A Mother for Choco (Paperstar)

The Lamb-A-Roo

Positive Adoption: A Memoir

Parenting Your Internationally Adopted Child: From Your First Hours Together Through the Teen Years

When Love Is Not Enough: A Guide to Parenting With RAD-Reactive Attachment Disorder

A Child Called It: One Child’s Courage to Survive

One of our friends strongly recommends this conference!  I hope to go eventually.  🙂   Created for Care conference


I hope to also post a list of great blogs on adoption/foster care soon!
