Free text The author writes this book for people who are looking to adopt internationally for various reasons which may include these: It is too difficult to adopt in the USA; competition is too high - do not want to be "selected" by a birthmother as the best parent - competition from married couples if you are a single pap; domestic adoptions are too slow; they are too expensive; want the challenge of bringing up a child from another culture. Different chapters include information on how to get started, choosing a country and what type of adoption to choose from - independent, facilitator or agency. Information on home studies, fees, travel arrangements, medical concerns when the child is brought home; chapter on "Becoming a multicultural family".
