Toddler Adoption: The Weaver's Craft Revised Edition

Paperback, 2012

Call number



Most often, children are joining their permanent, adoptive families past the age of infancy but not yet as "older children." This book covers many aspects of adopting and parenting these young children: the decision whether or not to adopt; preparation and education; forming attachments; behavior management; and more. Until now, few written resources have been available to discuss this special age -- the toddler.

Good book on challenges of adopting a toddler. This will make you stop & think. Toddlers are active in their world with no language to contribute - these little ones tend to have a harder time than younger or older. Anyone adopting a toddler really needs to read this.
