Welcoming a New Brother or Sister through Adoption

Welcoming a New Brother or Sister through Adoption is a 2010 Mom’s Choice Awards® Gold Recipient among adult adoption books and is the winner of the 2010 Benjamin Franklin Award as best book in the Psychology genre!

Arleta James, PCC, a therapist with the Attachment and Bonding Center of Ohio, has become well known on the speaking circuit for her expertise in working with adoption-expanded families. InWelcoming a New Brother or Sister through Adoption yshe shares what she has learned about integrating children who arrive at the newborn stage and at older ages —with histories of institutionalization, abuse, neglect, etc. — into families which already contain kids born into them or adopted by them who are developing predictably and “normally.”

From years of working with families who have adopted domestically and internationally, Arleta has developed practical tools for assisting parents, already-resident children and the older-adopted children who join them to use in accepting one-another’s unfamiliar behavior and culture and merging them, so that the family can forge strong connections and attachments to one another.
