Description
 
Carole S. Turner (au); Joyce Maguire Pavao (fr). Chronicles 11 stories of adoptive parents -- from married couples struggling with infertility, to single women, a gay couple, & foster parents -- all of them helping to reshape what “family” means today. Yearning parents follow varied paths to their adopted children: through U.S. adoption, through orphanages abroad, through foster care. But the search often presents thorny questions -- from practical to philosophical -- about race, money, power, prejudice, & social class. Poignant stories reveal the difficult but miraculous odysseys undertaken by adoptive parents, celebrate adoptive families, & dislodge lingering prejudices about adoption. “A riveting set of stories.”
