Before I Met You; A Therapeutic Pre-Adoption Narrative Designed for Children Adopted from China by Doris A. Landry, M.S.

It's hard to say enough positive things about this book. Every little girl adopted from China should have the chance to read this book with her forever family. The story explains from the point-of-view of the adoptive parent what the child's life may have been like in China before coming home to her forever family. The author, a psychotherapist who specializes in attachment/adoption, sensitively presents the information in a way that will open dialogue between parent and child. Suggestions for parents are in the back of the book. Ordering information is available on the author's website.
