Hi, I have never been on this board before. My name is Amanda. I have a question. My husband adopted my daughter 2 years ago. She is 5 years old and we are going to be telling her within the next year or so. I was wondering if anyone new any good books or poems we could use about step parent adoption. I have done tons of research and cannot find anything for step parent adoptions. Thanks

I really have no idea, but I wanted to welcome you and say hello. Hopefully someone else will have an answer.

You're right. There isn't a lot out there specific to step-child adoption. There is one book that kept coming up. It's called Joining Together: Jo's Story, by Sheila Byrne, Leigh Chambers, and Sarah Rawlings. However, it's published by a British Press house. You can still get it here on Amazon but it's about $35 for the paperback. ISBN # is: 978-1-873868-67-6.

Here is a link to a site that will let you write your own story, although it's a bit pricey. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
