With the guidance of this book, I'm now working away at my daughter's lifebook.
This book can guide you whether your adoption was international or domestic, an infant adoption or an older child, a child who was in foster care . . . Whatever the circumstances, Beth O'Malley has guidance and advice for how to handle it in the lifebook.
If you are an adoptive parent, I urge you to get this book and get to work on this important part of preserving and transmitting your beloved child's story.
