Reviews - What do customers think about Adoptees Come of Age: Living Within Two Families (Counseling and Pastoral Theology)?
Blessings for all involved in the triad of adoption Mar 22, 2004
This adoptive mother of three children thought this book was a great read! Very insightful for someone outside the adoption triad. Nydam brings hope and insight to all involved in adoption - birth parents, adoptees, and adoptive parents. His years of counseling adoptees give a fresh look at how we came better understand adoptees heartbeats. I recommend it to all people touched by adoption and relinquishment.
Want to better understand the adoptee? Sep 24, 2000
Adoptees Come of Age is an excellent book for anyone who wants to better understand how the adoptee feels and acts as a result of being placed for adoption. While adoptees are not the only people in life who have issues - their issues have a unique set of circumstances that makes is extremely difficult for people to understand who have not experienced being adopted for themsleves. This is one of the best books that I have read on the subject.
Not For Adoptees Only Jul 14, 2000
Mr. Nydam's well doumented book provides sensitive and sensible information for the adult adoptee. It is also pertinent for other adults touched by adoption; parents, partners, children and siblings. Of special interest is the scholarly research that Nydam has done as a foundation for his ideas. Nydam captures the essence of the adult adoptee dilemma and offers some loving resolution. Not easy to read, as the content raises emotions, this book is important for all parts of the adoption world. Nydam comes at his subject from a pastoral counseling point of view without undue religious overtones or dogma.
