What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: An Adoptive Parent's Perspective is a tender, revealing look at adoption from the parent perspective. Whether you are an adoptive parent, an adoptee, someone considering adoption, or simply curious about adoption dynamics, What I Want My Adopted Child to Know: An Adoptive Parent's Perspective will touch your heart and increase your sensitivity to the challenges and joys that are unique to adoptive parenting.

Bacchetta wrote the book in response to a need common among adoptive families. "Adoptive families navigate emotional terrain that fully-biological families don't have to. This is a book adoptive parents can give to their child and say, 'I know adoption is painful, unsettling, joyous, and affirming. It's that way for me too. More than anything, adoption is the way we came together, and I'll always be grateful for that.'"

Bacchetta's words echo with the collective voice of over 100 adoptive parents interviewed for this book. With chapters like "I Would Do it All Again", "You Are Not Different Because You Were Adopted," and "I Regret What I Can't Give You," What I Want My Adopted Child to Know is by turns affirming, challenging, thoughtful, wistful, and poignant.
