This book, expanded from her 2000 issue, presents information on what lifebooks are, why they are so important, and how to proceed with them from just about any standpoint. O’Malley includes a 58 page chapter on the "Essentials." It is all written in a touching, personal manner by someone who spent her first five months in foster care before becoming adopted and eventually started a career as an adoption worker.
