You hear all sorts of things said or implied about adoption. Some information comes from people who know a lot about it, while some comes from people who don't know anything about it but make assumptions anyway. Some comes from people whose experiences have been good; some from those whose experiences have been bad. The result? Enough conflicting information to make your head spin. So when everyone has an opinion and most of the books on the market deal with specific aspects on adoption or particular types of adoptions, where do you turn to for reliable information? Start with Adoption For Dummies. The great thing about this guide is that you decide where to start and what to read. It's a reference you can jump into and out of at will. Just head to the table of contents or the index to find the information you want. Each part of Adoption For Dummies covers a particular aspect of adoption, including:* Answering the basic adoption questions - How much does it cost? Who's involved? How long does it take? What do I need to know that I don't know to ask? And more.* Getting started - and figuring out what steps you have to take.* Dealing with birthmothers and birthfathers - and why, even though they may not be part of your life, they're still important to you.* Confronting the issues adoptive families face - issues from sharing the adoption story with your child, to answering your child's questions about his birthparents, to handling rude family members who treat your child differently than her cousins.* Finding help - from books, resources, and support groups. No adoption book - at least no adoption book that you can carry around without a hydraulic lift - can tell you everything there is to know about adoption. What Adoption For Dummies tells you is what you need to know, all in an easy-to-use reference. Produkt poekspozycyjny lub końcówka magazynowa.

Kniha Trans VERSO
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Moving memoir and insightful examination of transgender politics§§"Six weeks before sex reassignment surgery (SRS), I am obliged to stop taking my hormones. I suddenly feel very differently about my forthcoming operation."§§In July 2012, aged thirty, Juliet Jacques underwent sex reassignment surgery-a process she chronicled with unflinching honesty in a serialised national newspaper column. Trans tells of her life to the present moment: a story of growing up, of defining yourself, and of the rapidly changing world of gender politics.§§Fresh from university, eager to escape a dead-end job, she launches a career as a writer in a publishing culture dominated by London cliques and still figuring out the impact of the Internet. She navigates the treacherous waters of a world where, even in the liberal and feminist media, transgender identities go unacknowledged, misunderstood or worse. Yet through art, film, music, politics and football, Jacques starts to become the person she had only imagined, and begins the process of transition. Interweaving the personal with the political, her memoir is a powerful exploration of debates that comprise trans politics, issues which promise to redefine our understanding of what it means to be alive.§§Revealing, honest, humorous, and self-deprecating, Trans includes an epilogue with Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be? , in which Jacques and Heti discuss the cruxes of writing and identity.§§From the Hardcover edition.
