Handbook for Prospective Single Parents.
Marindin, Hope
This handbook for prospective single adoptive parents provides information on locating and adopting a child, necessary clothing and supplies for children of various ages, health and day care arrangements, expenses incurred after adoption, various financial benefits and subsidies available to the adoptive parent, and legal and financial provisions which should be made by the adoptive parent for the child's support. A final section on the adoption experience focuses on the personal feelings and anxieties of the adoptive parent, and includes accounts of the parenting experiences of three particular kinds of single person adoption: trans-racial adoption, adoption by an older single person, and adoption by a single man.
