Adoption Is Okay

 

 

 

Adoption Is Okay
by Sylvia Rohde

Randolph W. Severson, Ph.D, Author, Dear Birthfather, October 1, 1999
"...a wonderful story, beautifully told and stunningly illustrated...[to] be read aloud and often, held, caressed and wondered at..."


Adela Jones, LMSW, Adoption Counselor, October 1, 1999
"...we are sorely lacking in tools ...for Russian children coming into this country...a tremendous gift from a gifted professional!"


Carol Demuth, LMSW, Adoption Counselor
"...gently...lovingly prepares the heart of a child for the myriad of emotions she will experience in being adopted internationally."


Book Description
"Adoption Is Okay" introduces the concept of adoption to children from preschool through school age. In simple language the child learns about leaving Russia to join a forever family. Throughout the experience, the child is given permission to feel and express all her emotions from joy to confusion to sadness. The story ends celebrating this special child.

The child’s story is written in English and Russian. This book will aid orphanage staff in preparing a child for adoption by an American family, and help the parents after placement, as they guide their child through her adjustment to a new family and unfamiliar surroundings.

Though written about a Russian child going to the United States, this story is universal and will be a comforting and validating story for any foreign-born child being adopted by an English speaking family.

From the Publisher
This beautiful, 9-1/2 x 12 inch high book is designed to become a life-time treasure for an internationally adopted child. The hand-painted illustrations are vividly colored, authentic images that will help preserve a child’s memory of her native culture and experiences. Each illustration is lacquered for brightness and the book is camel-back bound for safety and durability.


From the Author
My hope is that every adoptive family of an internationally-born child will own this book. The book was written to help internationally adopted children cope with their losses and gains, before and after their adoption. In an effort to provide an educational tool as well, the Russian translation is as literal as possible.
