Author Brenda McCreight, Ph.D. has released her fourth book, Help I’ve Been Adopted, published by Tapestry Books. Tapestry Books is a specialized online adoption books store. McCreight, an adoptive parent of twelve and consultant specializing in serving adoptive and foster families dealing with challenges including FASD, ADHD, developmental delays, and cognitive impairment, writes Help I’ve Been Adopted offering support for older child adoption and those caring for and serving them.
Realizing that a lot of the newly placed children receiving support from her practice were experiencing a kind of “culture shock” that was leaving them overwhelmed by all the changes that a new family demands, McCreight felt there was a missing piece to the puzzle; there needed to be an adoption book for adoption counseling. Help I’ve Been Adopted is for all older child adoptees, their parents and the professionals who work with them. “The purpose of the book is to address the issues that aren’t given the time or attention that many young adoptees need in order to fit the past into its rightful place and to grasp onto the present…this book gives them a place to start their own journey to emotional health,” stated McCreight.
Help I’ve Been Adopted works through issues including how to help the older adopted child or teen understand attachment and what it means in their lives, answering questions about why kids get adopted, how to form a family identity, and how the hopes and dreams that everyone (including the child and parents) has about the adoption don’t always match the reality.
Deborah Brennan, adoptive mother and author stated, “Brenda McCreight has done it again! In this enlightening book, Brenda conveys in simple, understandable terms, the complexities of older child and teen adoption. This revelatory guide will help parents, professionals and children not only navigate their feelings, but also help them use practical suggestions and examples to make positive progress in their personal adoption journeys. This little gem is a must-have for the adoption community!”
Help I’ve Been Adopted, published by Tapestry Books, is available through the publisher, Amazon.com, major wholesalers, Barnes & Noble and other retail bookstores.
