Beginnings: How Families Come to Be by Virginia Kroll
Six small stories that illustrated several different ways that children join families, including by adoption.
I Don’t Have Your Eyes by Carrie A. Kitze will especially appeal to families who’ve adopted outside of their ethnic group. It helps create bonds by concentrating on the similarities instead of the differences.
 
How I Was Adopted: Samantha’s Story by Joanna Cole
This is the story of Samantha’s adoption told from a child’s perspective.
