For generations, Americans have adopted more than 130,000 children annually from within the United States and from abroad. That means more than 100 million people in our country today have adoption in their immediate families – and nearly everyone is connected to this extraordinary, misunderstood, controversial, life-altering institution in some way. Adoption Nation (The Harvard Common Press, April 2011) takes on the challenge of explaining the historic changes enveloping us all – and does so with a unique combination of engaging prose, gripping stories, insightful perspective and exceptional research. Its author, Adam Pertman, is one of the most influential experts in his field and Adoption Nation has been called “the most important book ever written on the subject.” A former senior journalist at the Boston Globe for 23 years, Pertman currently serves as the Executive Director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute and Associate Editor of Adoption Quarterly. Discussion points: How adoption is transforming the American family.  Understanding Open Adoption, Whether to adopt from abroad or in the U.S., and other difficult adoption decision.  Adoptees: Understanding the quest for identities.The Wild West of Internet Adoption (adoption practice, reunions, etc.
