Adopting: Sound Choices, Strong Families. Patricia Irwin Johnston, $29.50

If you’ve been struggling with infertility issues, are a single person or a partner in a same-sex family, chances are adoption has come up in your thinking about a means of building your family. Perhaps you’ve thought a little, perhaps a lot. Adopting: Sound Choices Strong Families offers expert guidance, insight and key understanding about adoption as a genuine, practical means for growing a family–perhaps even yours.

Written to help prospective adoptive parents like you make smater, more thoughtful decisions about adopting a child, this guide will challenge you and move you step-by-step through the process of adoption through the lens of the deeply personal and emotional obstacles everyone feels during this decision-making process.


Adoption by Lesbians and Gay Men: a New Dimension in Family Diversity. David Brodzinsky & Adam Pertman, Editors, $46.95

The practice of adoption has changed dramatically over the past half century, with profound implications for children and families. Perhaps the most remarkable and controversial transformation during this time has been the growing willingness of adoption professionals to place children with sexual-minority individuals and couples. Yet, despite considerable research showing that lesbians and gay men can make good parents, they continue to experience difficulties and barriers in many parts of the country in their efforts to adopt and raise children. Indeed, while progress in this area has been significant, it has been impeded by the homophobia and heterosexist attitudes of adoption professionals and the judiciary; by numerous stereotypes and misconceptions about parenting by lesbians and gay men, and by a lack of adequate guidelines and training for establishing best practice standards in working with this rapidly growing group of adoptive parents.

Adoption by Lesbians and Gay Men explores the gamut of historical, legal, sociological, psychological, social casework, and personal issues related to adoption by sexual-minority individuals and couples. Leading experts in a variety of fields address and often shatter — the controversies, myths, and misconceptions hindering efforts by these individuals to adopt and raise children. What makes this book all the more valuable is that it provides insights and specific recommendations for establishing empirically validated best practices for working with an important sector of our society, for treating all prospective and current parents fairly and equally, and, perhaps most importantly, for increasing a still largely untapped resource for providing families for children who need them.


The Adoption Constellation: New Ways of Thinking about and Practicing Adoption.  Michael Phillip Grand, $19.95

The Adoption Constellation provides an in-depth analysis of the foundational principles of our cultural and psychological understanding of adoption. Grand surveys the literature on adoption and stigma, demonstrating that the experience of adoption cannot be divorced from a community's assessment of the status of this family form. Integrating the cultural and psychological factors influencing the experience of adoption, the social construction of narrative identity is used to capture the lived experience of members of the adoption constellation. Core themes such as loss, rejection, grief, intimacy, and mattering are described. The book concludes with an analysis of alternatives beyond conventional adoption as a basis for permanency, and a suggested set of political strategies for opening up adoption records.

Adoption-Specific Therapy: a Guide to Helping Adopted Children and Their Families Thrive. Jill Waterman, Audra Langley, Jeanne Miranda & Debbie Riley, $96.95

Children who are adopted at an older age through foster care and those adopted from overseas orphanages are at high risk for behavioral and emotional distress. This important manual presents a structured, evidence-based protocol for providing mental health treatment to families adopting vulnerable children.

Drawing on their extensive clinical experience as founding members of premier national organizations that serve adopted children and their families, the authors of this book describe the typical presenting behavioral problems of adopted children, as well as the underlying issues contributing to these problems that uniquely affect adoptive families. These include concerns related to parent child attachment, loss and grief, trauma, the child’s understanding of his or her adoption “story,” identity development, and birth family connections. Therapy sessions deliver evidence based child coping strategies and positive parenting approaches that are tailored to account for the child’s past history, alongside resiliency focused, trauma competent, attachment based treatment. The book’s companion website provides free in-session handouts for practitioners. Given the unique needs of this clinical population, this book is essential for therapists who treat adopted and foster youth and their families.

Assessing Adoptive Parents, Foster Carers and Kinship Carers: Improving Analysis and Understanding Parenting Capacity. Joanne Alper & David Howe, Editors, $45.95

Assessing prospective adoptive parents, foster carers, kinship carers and special guardians is an extremely complex task, and one that happens within a pressurized time frame. Currently, assessments draw substantially on interviews, which can generate a lot of information but little analysis to enable professionals to establish a meaningful understanding of parenting capacity. Children with histories of trauma, loss and hurt need to join families in which parents exhibit the ability to be good at relationships, are able to manage their own stress and bond with the child in their care. Now fully updated and expanded to cover the assessment of kinship carers and special guardians, this book combines the latest findings from neuroscience with research on what makes good assessments and provides guidance and tools for making thorough, analytical and effective assessments.

With contributions from leading experts including Dan Hughes, Jonathan Baylin, Kim Golding and Julie Selwyn, it will provide you with the information you need to ensure the best possible chance of placement success.


Becoming an Adoption-Friendly School: a Whole-School Resource for Supporting Children Who Have Experienced Trauma or Loss. Emma Gore Langton & Katherine Boy, $45.95

Adopted children who have experienced loss, abuse or neglect need additional support for their emotional development, and are more likely to have special educational needs. This useful resource provides a complete plan for creating adoption-friendly environments in primary, secondary and specialist schools.

The book is grounded on new research which gathered together testimonies from over 400 school staff members, adoptive parents and adoption specialists. With realistic consideration of pressures and limitations currently faced by schools, it gives advice on eight key areas for school development, including communicating with parents, training staff, using resources wisely and recognising children's individual needs. Completing the toolkit is a broad selection of photocopiable and downloadable plans for establishing adoption-friendly frameworks, and for demonstrating good practice to staff, pupils, families and supervisors.

Facilitating Meaningful Contact in Adoption and Fostering: a Trauma-Informed Approach to Planning, Assessing and Good Practice. Louis Sydney & Elsie Price, $25.95

Most children who are fostered or adopted have some level of contact with their birth family, whether face-to-face or by letter,  yet most of the time the psychological impact of contact on the child isn't considered. This book explores what attachment, neuroscience and trauma tell us about how contact affects children, and shows how poorly executed contact can be unhelpful or even harmful to the child. Assessment frameworks are provided which take the child's developmental needs into account. The authors also outline a model for managing and planning contact to make it more purposeful and increase its potential for therapeutic benefit. The book covers the challenges presented by the Internet for managing contact, unique issues for children in kinship care, problems that arise when adoptive parents separate and many other key issues for practice.

Brimming with practical advice and creative solutions, this is an indispensable tool for social workers, contact centre workers, and other professionals involved in contact arrangements or the therapeutic support of fostered and adopted children.

Finding Families, Finding Ourselves: English Canada Encounters Adoption from the Nineteenth Century to the 1990s. Veronica Strong-Boag, $49.95

Finding Families, Finding Ourselves traces the history of adoption in English Canada from the nineteenth century to the 1990s. Relying on public records rather than interviews, historian Veronica Strong-Boag examines how childrearing, class relations, gender, religion, ethnicity and race, Aboriginal-settler contact, international exchanges, and (re)connection shaped and informed the thinking and practices of adoption as they emerged over the years. Her research looks at diverse sources including legislation, the popular media, royal commission reports, biographies and autobiographies, and fiction and poetry — providing an unexplored vantage point from which to assess the overall development of adoption as a central and all too often under-appreciated institution in English Canada.

Keeping Your Adoptive Family Strong: Strategies for Success. Gregory Keck & L. Gianforte, $22.95

Welcoming a new child into the home through adoption is a life-altering experience-for the child, the parents, and everyone else in the family. Expectations and realities often differ dramatically, and adjusting to the change can be difficult and emotionally painful.

Since the majority of children available for adoption today are in the system as the result of abuse and neglect, parents must acknowledge the fact they these young innocents will carry their trauma with them into their new homes. A willingness to address the not-so-easy, didn't-see-that-coming aspects of adoption is the first step toward building a strong family. 

A valuable resource for parents and professionals, this book provides useful strategies for facing the challenges posed by adopted children. The inclusion of real stories from real people adds heart and encouragement, offering hope for the future of the entire family.

A Legal History of Adoption in Ontario, 1921-2015. Lori Chambers, $27.95

Lori Chambers’ fascinating study explores the legal history of adoption in Ontario since the passage of the first statute in 1921. This volume explores a wide range of themes and issues in the history of adoption including: the reasons for the creation of statutory adoption, the increasing voice of unmarried fathers in newborn adoption, the reasons for movement away from secrecy in adoption, the evolution of step-parent adoption, the adoption of Indigenous children, and the growth of international adoption.

Unlike other works on adoption, Chambers focuses explicitly on statutes, statutory debates and the interpretation of statues in court. In doing so, she concludes that adoption is an inadequate response to child welfare and on its own cannot solve problems regarding child neglect and abuse. Rather, Chambers argues that in order to reform the area of adoption we must first acknowledge that it is built upon social inequalities within and between nations.
