Someone gave me an idea for a book and I cannot for the life of me find the title. What books do you think are good?
I once heard an adoptive couple say "No adoptee should leave the hospital without a copy of "The Primal Wound: Understanding The Adopted Child" by Nancy Verrier." http://www.amazon.com/Primal-Wound-Understanding-Adopted-Child/dp/0963648004/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1309368010&sr=1-1 I'm not sure that is the perfect book for you since you didn't adopt your children as infants. I would have recommended that as an adoptee you get it anyway, (all the adoptees I know say it's the adoption bible) but again since you knew your birth mother growing up, I'm not sure it's the perfect book for you in that sense either.
I would recommend the book "Twenty Things Adopted Kids Wished their Adoptive Parents Knew" by Sherrie Eldridge. http://www.amazon.com/Twenty-Things-Adopted-Adoptive-Parents/dp/044050838X

Next question overall
Do you feel it still takes a village to raise a child?
