Adoption Nation by Adam Pertman

Adoption NationIn this revised edition of Adam Pertman's award-winning book, first published in 2000, readers will find updated information on every aspect of adoption and its changing role in American society. Pertman, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated journalist and father of two adopted children, offers an unflinching study of adoption policy and processes.I was asked to review this book, and I found it really interesting and powerful.  Adoption Nation goes through the adoption process in the United States.  If you have anything to do with Adoption, I suggest you read Adoption Nation!  Like this post ~
