Offering honest, clear explanations for some of the possible issues that an adopted child may face growing up, this book answers such questions as - How do adopted children deal with the fact that they may look nothing like their parents or siblings? What if they were adopted from another country? - Why did the birth parents give up the child? - How did the adoptive parents find the child? - Does being adopted mean the child is any better or worse than other children? - What if one day the child wants to know his or her birth parents?
"Why Was I Adopted?" explains away much of the initial confusion, instills a feeling of uniqueness in an adopted child, and encourages open lines of communication with parents.
