About 2 percent of children in the United States are adopted. Some of these children may be from another country. Other children are adopted out of foster care or after a parent voluntarily gives them up. Sometimes, a stepparent may adopt the children of their spouse. This book carefully approaches the different types of adoption and some of the challenges that adoptive families face. Your young readers are encouraged to consider how adoption affects a family and how they can show support and understanding for peers who are adopted.
