The Guide for a Safe Adoption Journey
“The Cruelest Con”
By Kelly Kiser-Mostrom
Advance Praise…..
cruelest“The Cruelest Con” is a unique book in many ways: it is deeply personal, emotionally powerful, and contains important lessons for everyone in the adoption community. We all should read it and learn from it so that adoption can truly be the rewarding, ethical process that it should be.”Adam Pertman, author of “Adoption Nation” and executive director of the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute of Broken Spirits ~ Lost Souls: Loving Children with Attachment and Bonding Difficulties****Note From The Author****
Unethical practices and adoption scams do not only happen to adoptive parents. Expectant mothers, birth parents, seo leeds, adoptee’s and adoption professionals are also at risk. In order for a con to be successful often times the con will hide under the cloak of legitimate professionals. Education, knowing who you are working with, and thoroughly researching your options are a start in the right direction for an ethical positive adoption journey. Ethics in adoption is a MUST and the NORM!CLICK HERE TO VIEW MORE BOOKS ON ADOPTION READING!babies by the bayANNOUNCEMENTS
