Inclusion on these lists does not necessarily mean endorsement as we have not had the chance to read all of them. Furthermore, with all our resources, we highly recommend you preview them first to determine if there are any trauma triggers that your child may not be ready to handle. Transfiguring Adoption does not intend for its reviewers nor its review to be professional, medical or legal advice. These reviews and discussion guides are intended to help parents to better be able to connect and understand their children who come from traumatic backgrounds.


  1. When Rain Hurts would be a great addition for adults.

    • Thanks! I’d never seen that one before. It looks like a good read. 🙂

  2. How great that you put this list together. I would like to add my recently released compilation of love letters to adoptive parents–Drowning With My Hair On Fire: Insanity Relief for Adoptive Parents. Parents and family members can find it on my website at http://www.attachplace.com/drowning-hair-fire or on Amazon.com. I hope the daily letters are mostly humorous and uplifting despite their honest reflection on adoption from my attachment therapist and adoptive mother point of view.
    Love with a twist matters,

    • Thanks! I’ll get it on our list for grown-ups! 🙂

  3. Thanks for this list of books, it’s great! A lot of them are ones I reccommend to the families I work with. I Have a book I wrote about Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) that I love to hand out to people who want to know more about this disorder.

    is it possible to get it listed on your site? The title is “A Glimpse at Understanding RAD; Reactive Attachment Disorder: Hoe it Affects Children, Families, and Society”. It is currently available on my website, http://www.NextGenerationAttachment.org/store

    Thanks again for the great site!
