Book Title: Carried in Our Hearts: The Gift of Adoption: Inspiring Stories of Families Created Across Continents

Author: Dr. Jane Aronson

Book Description:


Adoption touches more people than one might assume.  Ask a friend if they know someone who has been a part of the adoption triad, invariably they will have a story to tell.  Adoption is both very personal and very political.  It is impacted by social policy, financial barriers, and views on race.  It involves psychosocial issues, identity, and the need to navigate complicated relationships.  It is generally viewed in a positive light in American culture but stereotypes persist.  This book tells the stories of adoptive parents and children adopted from around the world.  It provides a glimpse into the world of adoption and the world of the children "left behind".
