Pregnancy and childbirth might be the most common way to expand a family, but it's far from the only one. When eager parents reach out to babies or older kids whose biological families can't care for them, brand-new families are formed. This book discusses both the challenges and the many blessings of adoptive families. "What is a family?" What used to seem like a simple question has grown ever more complex. This set explores the different types of family structures that have become increasingly common in the 21st century. The books offer not only objective demographic information, but also friendly accessible advice for kids with "nontraditional" families.
