The explanations of how the children see things, and why they react as they do, are well described and helpful

‘Adoptymum’ is a really well written book.  It is honest, heartfelt, painful, and funny.  I started reading and couldn’t put it down.
It is the story of one mum’s ( and adoptydad’s) journey into adoptive parenting, it’s joys, embarrassments, trials and sheer survival. With an underlying theme of love for and commitment to their children whatever the pressures. I suspect many adoptive parents would see a lot of their own feelings and story in it.
The explanations of how the children see things, and why they react as they do, are well described and helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in adoption.
