The Best Adoption Blogs
Online adoption diaries are so popular, we couldn't find room in the magazine to list all of our favorites. So here are the links to the stories we enjoyed the most. And if you're looking for more good reads, check out our bookstore where you can find how-to guides, memoirs, and children's books that will inspire you and your children.

Take a look at this must-read piece before you decide that adoption is the cause of your child's problems.
