Recently Read Favorite Adoption Books: Adoption Talk Link-Up

I'm a huge fan of adoption books.  I've read close to every book that's been released in the last twenty years (and even some vintage adoption books, too!)

I'm asked a lot by readers about resources.  What are the best books on certain adoption subjects? What books are most helpful?   Most readable?  Most applicable?

I list many, many resources in my first book Come Rain or Come Shine: A White Parents Guide to Adopting and Parenting Black Children.   I believe resources open doors to knowledge and empathy, particularly when it comes to learning about the experiences of triad members.

Here are some of recently read favorite adoption-themed books, in no particular order:

The Waiting: The True Story of a Lost Child, a Lifetime of Longing, and a Miracle for a Mother Who Never Gave Up

Separated @ Birth: A True Love Story of Twin Sisters Reunited


  1. What a great list! I actually haven't heard of a few of those. Excited to add a few more to my reading list!

  2. Great list! I found a new one to add to my kindle. I have also found that reading others stories has developed empathy to all members of adoption triad. Thanks!
