Books

Adoption Healing…a path to recovery by Joe Soll

This one is by a friend of mine and someone with extensive experience in helping others process through the negative emotions and trauma of adoption

I read this many, many years ago and I still view it as one of the most insightful works on the subject. A highly recommended read if you can find it.
