Some adoptions, though, present unique challenges. Welcoming these children into your family--and addressing their special needs--requires care, consideration, and compassion. Written by two research psychologists specializing in adoption and attachment,The Connected Childwill help you: Build bonds of affection and trust with your adopted child Effectively deal with any learning or behavioral disorders Discipline your child with love without making him or her feel threatened . . . a must-read not only for adoptive parents, but for all families striving to correct and connect with their children. --Carol S.

Donaldson Adoption Institute The Connected Childis the literary equivalent of an airline oxygen mask and instructions: place the mask over your own face first, then over the nose of your child.This book first assists the parent, saying, in effect, Calm down, youre not the first mom or dad in the world to face this hurdle, breathe deeply, then follow these simple steps. The sense of not facing these issues alone--the relief that your childs behavior is not off the charts--is hugely comforting. Other children have behaved this way; other parents have responded thusly; welcome to the community of therapeutic and joyful adoptive families. --Melissa Fay Greene, author ofThere is No Me Without You: One Womans Odyssey to Rescue Africas Children
