When a child is adopted, he or she can arrive with hurts from past pain. With time, patience, informed parenting, and appropriate therapy, your adopted child can heal, grow, and develop beyond what seems possible now.

Gregory C. Keck and Regina M. Kupecky explain how to manage a hurting child with loving wisdom and resolve and how to preserve your stability while untangling their thorny hearts.

"As an adoptive parent, I found this book to be an outstanding and extremely empathetic look at the struggles faced by adoptive parents and their children. The authors did an excellent job providing suggestions for things you can do to help your child, while also providing lots of suggestions and encouragement for parents. It's easy to read and filled with great ideas.

While many similar books focus on how parents can help their children form attachments, heal from past trauma, etc., this book also conveyed deep levels of empathy for adoptive parents and lots of suggestions for parents who are struggling to connect with their "hurt" children.

I've read many books for adoptive parents, but this one is truly one of my favorites. I wish I had read it before I adopted my daughter! I highly recommend it."

Parenting the Hurt Child is a required reading by certain adoption agencies as part of the Adoption Suitability Assessment (ASA), especially for applicants seeking to adopt a child above 15 months old or from state care. We highly recommend this book to all couples who are considering adoption.
