    Product Description

    The adoption of a child is always a joyous moment in the life of a family.

    Some adoptions, though, present unique challenges. Welcoming these children into your family— and addressing their special needs— requires care, consideration, and compassion.

    Written by two research psychologists specializing in adoption and attachment, The Connected Child will help you:

    • Build bonds of affection and trust with your adopted child
    • Effectively deal with any learning or behavioral disorders
    • Discipline your child with love without making him or her feel threatened

    For any who have adopted special needs children of any kind, this book is real--I wish I knew about it 20 years ago; I should have had these tools to better understand--it would have saved much frustration. Practical, and so down-to-earth!
