Free text This book is about adoptive fathers. It tries to reflect accurately the diversity of adoptive fathers' experience. It does not discuss the legal side of adoption in depth but does bring out the most relevant features of the studies and consultations that went into the formation of the new british law. The book also describes the main stages of the adoptive process and key terms in the language of adoption so that the content of the book will make sense to those who are thinking about adopting as well as to those who are familiar with it. The different chapters talk about the preparation for adoption, the matching stage, the placement, the follow-up... All this from the point of view of the adoptive father.
