Adopting: Sound Choices, Strong Families
by Patricia Irwin Johnston
"Prospective parents who are struggling with infertility will find this remarkable book a wonderful guide to their consideration of adoption as a potential way to form their family. Patricia Irwin Johnston's seminal book, Adoption: Sound Choices, Strong Families provides advice and analysis of a wide variety of aspects of adoption as a way to building a family - from coping with infertility and deciding to adopt, through the ups and downs of the adoption process, and into the realities of raising your family. Adoption is not for everyone, and this book clearly walks you through the decision process of the family building option that is right for you. If you do decide to look further into adoption, it provides a wealth of information on both the process of adoption and the realities of being an adoptive family. Highly recommended."

Infertility to Family
by Rocky A. De Lorenzo

"This is the eloquent story of the DeLorenzo's quest for a child - through the emotional and physical heartbreak of infertility (and infertility treatment) to the adoption of their little girl from China. Honest and always humorous, DeLorenzo's storytelling ability never falters in this surprisingly gripping first hand account. I recommend it to anyone struggling with infertility, considering international adoption or interested in the male perception of this roller coaster journey." (Allison Martin)

An Empty Lap a mother's adoption from China

An Empty Lap : One Couple's Journey to Parenthood
By Jill Smolowe

"I really liked 'An Empty Lap' by Jill Smolowe.  It not only talks about the author's Chinese adoption, but also about her battle with infertility and all of the emotions that goes along with it.  I didn't start reading until after we had decided to adopt, but I wish I would have read it while we were going through infertility ourselves.  As I was reading it, I kept saying, 'That's exactly how I felt!'  Happy reading."
