Free text Just as the decision to adopt should be made with thought and care-after considerable reflection, discussion, and gathering of information-the decision to adopt a child with prenatal alcohol and or other drug exposure should be made only after consideration of the added challenges. Designed primarily for professionals, this book offers practical suggestions, recommendations for preparing, counselling, and working with those who are considering adopting an infant or child who has been prenatally exposed to alcohol and or other drugs.(adapted from editor’s abstract)
