Books for Single Adoptive Parents
Choosing Single Motherhood: The Thinking Woman’s Guide by Mikki Morrissette – I loved the spirit of this book. Without glossing over the hard parts, Morrissette celebrates motherhood and the choice to parent without a partner. This book covers families formed by adoption, by using a known sperm donor, and using an unknown donor. The only thing I would change about this book is the name. It is equally applicable to women or men who choose single parenthood. I interviewed the author on the Creating a Family radio show.
Adopting on Your Own: The Complete Guide to Adoption for Single Parents by Lee Varon. This is an excellent resource for single people considering adoption. It helps singles with the decision-making process and maneuvering through the adoption process.
The Single Parent Resource by Brook Noel and Arthur C. Klein. Not specific to adoption.
