Adoption, The Best Gift: A handbook for prospective adoptive parents
by Nikki Biers
When Nikki Biers and her husband were beginning to look into adoption, they had no idea what to expect or where to start. They met with an adoption attorney who was very thorough legally, but had no idea how to support them emotionally. First adoption experiences can be overwhelming and even a little frightening especially not knowing what questions to ask or what to expect from a birthmother. They wished there had been some kind of reference material or book to let them know if they were on the right track and where they were in the adoption process. Through the adoption of their three children as well as years as an experienced adoption facilitator, Nikki realized she wasn't alone in her desire for information. Adoption, The Best Gift was born from this need for basic procedural and emotional guidance. Each chapter covers an important step toward making the dream of family a reality. The book is rich with examples of actual client stories, as well as their joys, fears and concerns during the process of bringing their babies into their families. These personal examples and the documentation of the various emotions that may surface along the way, combined with clear explanations of what to expect, make Adoption, The Best Gift an essential guide for anyone considering adoption.
