Editor Margaret Haerens has compiled a series of essays that explores topics relating to the adoption of international children. The essays represent varied expert opinions that examine many of the different aspects that comprise these topics. This allows the reader to attain the higher-level critical thinking and reading skills that are essential in a culture of diverse and contradictory opinions. Across four chapters, readers will evaluate whether international adoptions should be encouraged, what impact celebrity adoptions has on it, the consequences of international adoptions, and what changes should be made to the international adoption process.
