CAIRO BOOKS's Description
You hear all sorts of things said or implied about adoption. Some information

How long does it take? What do I need to know that I don’t know to ask? And
more. Getting started – and figuring out what steps you have to take. Dealing

family members who treat your child differently than her cousins. Finding
help – from books, resources, and support groups.
No adoption book – at least no adoption book that you can carry around without
a hydraulic lift – can tell you everything there is to know about adoption.
What Adoption For Dummies tells you is what you need to know, all in an
