Approaching Fatherhood: A Guide for Adoptive Dads and Others by Paul May
What is it like being an adoptive dad? How do you go about adopting a child, preparing for a new kind of life, and dealing with the challenges along the way? How do men fit into the adoption scene?
This is the first book in the UK to combine adoptive fathers' experiences with a guide to the adoption process - from the man's point of view.
In a time when our understanding of fathers and their roles is coming under scrutiny, this book is a welcome addition. Fathers have been largely silent and unstudied figures in the adoption world. And yet they play a crucial role in the success of adoptive placements, helping their children to live the secure, happy lives they deserve.
This book examines who some of these adoptive dads are, how they tick and what they make of the families they create. It is a great read for any father to be!
This book along with all previous books from our featured section can be borrowed from our library.
There is also a Father's story in our Adoption Stories section of the website that may also be of interest to you. This story can be read by clicking here.
