Description
"Cheri Register has given us a thought-provoking glimpse into the deeply complex world of international adoption: the children who grow up in it, the parents who raise them, the parents left behind, and the ethical questions it raises for us all."---Betty Jean Lifton Author of Lost and Found: The Adoption Experience

"Well-written and a pleasure to read. `Are Those Kids Yours?' provides an insightful, comprehensive resource for individuals contemplating, awaiting, or bringing up an internationally adopted child. In a clear manner, Register raises appropriate questions, stimulates new thoughtfulness and provides well-founded answers for parents of transracially adopted children....It will be of interest and usefulness to these children as they grow up, to their extended families and friends, and to adoption and mental health professionals who may be involved in various stages of their lives. A welcome addition to current resources, `Are Those Kids Yours?' is worth reading and re-reading once again."---Claudia Jewett Jarratt Author of Adopting the Older child

"Essential reading for international adoptive families, those considering intercountry adoption, and professionals serving these families. Cheri Register explores the ethics, both political and personal, of intercountry adoption, and the special responsibilities of families parenting a child from another country. Fascinating reading."---Susan Freivalds Executive Director Adoptive Families of America

"'Are Those Kids Yours?' describes the joys and pains, the pleasures and worries that families experience when they adopt children from abroad in poignant, yet realistic terms. The author draws upon her own experiences as a mother of two korean daughters and those of other families who have adopted children from Asian and Latin American countries. While strongly endorsing intercountry adoption, Cheri Register warns of the difficulties and disappointments families are likely to experience."---Rita I. Simon The American University Author of Transracial Adoptees and Their Families

"A treasure trove for international families...highly informative and superbly helpful. Register explores the past, present, and future of cross-cultural adoptions, with an emphasis on helping children understand their own histories. Personal anecdotes from international families make this book an enriching experience."---Jean Nelson-Erichsen Supervisor of Social Work Los Ninos International Adoption Center
