The Post Adoption Blues

‘The post adoption blues’ is a great book for all adoptive parents and professionals working with adoptive families. Karen J. Foli, a registered nurse, and her husband, John R. Thompson, a psychiatrist, talk openly about the “Post Adoption Depression Syndrome” (PADS). Drawing on their own personal experience as well as experience of other adoptive families and experts in the field, they offer the understanding, support, and resources to overcome the unforeseen challenges of adoption. 

‘This compassionate, illuminating, and ultimately uplifting book is the first to openly recognize the very normal feelings of stress that adoptive families encounter as they cope with the challenges and expectations of their new families. Where do parents turn when the waited-for bonding with their adopted child is slow to form? When they find themselves grieving over the birth child they couldn’t have? When the child they so eagerly welcomed into their home arrives with major, unexpected needs? Until now, adoptive parents have had to struggle silently with their feelings, which can range from flutters of anxiety to unbearable sadness’ .  Amazon.co.uk
