Young Children: Welcoming Families With Children Who Were Adopted

Did you know that currently there are more than 1.5 million adopted children living in the United States? While adoption is not new, changes in adoption laws and those seeking adoption have changed.

Open and international adoptions are just two types of adoptions that are having a growing impact on children, families, and schools. Many educators feel ill-prepared to confront issues related to contemporary adoption. Robin K. Fox's article in the September issue of Young Children seeks to provide information and resources for educators to assist them with developing policies that address the needs of today's adopted child. 

Stop by the library to read this issue today.
