must read if working with adoption families

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

clearly delivered message for all counsellors or professionals working with families formed through adoption. indeed equally very interesting for parents

What did you like best about this story?

Dee Paddock brings both personal and profession experience and is obviously passionate about the subject and the need for 'adoption competance' in professionals.

What about Blake Stiles’s performance did you like?

Dee Paddock delivered this audio book herself and is an excellent speaker.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

All of it.

Any additional comments?

Because it is a recording of a workshop given by Dee Paddock it is not always possible to fully hear questions from the audience and so you miss the question but do hear Ms Paddock's answer. Do not let this put you off, it is the answers and the content and Dee's strong clear delivery that make this book a must have for all professionals dealing with adoption related clients and all parents who need to seek out professionals to help with any problems.
