Book review

This infant, child, adolescent, and adult, and describes how each stage of development is affected by being adopted.

Respected and well known in the field of adoption, Dr. Brodzinsky and Schechter present a book which will interest not only adoptive parents, but adoptees wishing to know more about their loss issues and other aspects of their lifer experiences.

Working with writer Marantz Henig, psychologist Brodzinsky and Schechter, a psychiatrist, bring a joint total of more than fifty five years' experience in clinical and research work with adoptees and their families to this welcome addition to adoption literature. Adoptive parents wanting to know more about developmental tasks and challenges facing their children will be reassured that the difficulties associated with these are normal.

Readable and timely, "Being Adopted," gives a good understanding of how adoption is a lifelong experience which greatly impacts the lives of all involved in it.

Credits: Brodzinsky, Schechter, and Henig
