    1. This was great to read as someone with a family with biological and adoptive kids. So much laughter, tears, and many 'me too' moments. But I would also recommend this as a good read before you adopt as it is a 'warts and all' look at the adoptive family life. So much to take in and many great suggestions for trauma support for your family.
