I received this email yesterday and wish I had received it just a little bit earlier!  I can’t travel to Dallas this weekend, but would have considered making the three hour trek if it weren’t for a conflict.  If anyone is able to attend, report back with a review please!

About Sherrie Eldridge


In her groundbreaking first book,
Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew, Sherrie Eldridge gave voice to the very real concerns of adopted children, whose unique perspectives offered unprecedented insight. In this all-new companion volume, Eldridge goes beyond the insights of her first book and shifts her focus to parents, offering them much-needed encouragement, along with practical tools and advice on creating a loving, nurturing environment for their adopted child.

Speaking from her own experience as an adoptee and an expert in the field of adoption, Eldridge shares proven strategies and the moving narratives of nearly 100 adoptive families, helping parents gain a deeper understanding of their children’s needs–but especially their own. By first strengthening yourself as a parent, you’ll be able to truly listen to your child, to learn to speak his heart language, and to connect with him on every level.

Discover how to:

  • Talk candidly with your child about her adoption and her birth family
  • Help your child move past his “broken life” narrative
  • Keep your family on the “truth” track
  • Connect with other adoptive families—and build a support network
  • Handle negative birth-parent history openly and honestly
  • Plus much more.
