Adoption Bibliography and Multi-Ethnic Sourcebook.
Van Why, Elizabeth Wharton, Comp.
Designed for parents who have adopted or who contemplate adoption, and for educational, legal, medical, social, and theological professionals, this bibliography and source book contains over 1250 citations relating to adoption. The book is divided into two parts. The first section is a bibliography of articles, personal narratives, dissertations, books, audiovisuals, and bibliographies on adoption. All aspects of adoption are included in the text, containing citations about Black, Native American, handicapped, older, and sibling adoptees; intercultural, international, and single parent adoptions; adoptive parents; and adult adoptee organizations. Each citation includes author, title, availability, price, and date of material. Annotations describing the material are provided for many of the citations. The second part of the book is a comprehensive listing of items which reflect African, Asian, Latin American, and Native American heritages to help parents raise adopted children of different races. Dolls, toys, games, greeting cards, calendars, audiovisuals, artifacts, hobbies, programs and services, and bibliographies of children's books are listed. In addition, the text contains an alphabetical listing of 130 sources and organizations in the United States and Canada which provide information and services about ethnic groups. Various appendices to aid in the use of the sourcebook conclude the text. (Author/JR)
