Adoption Books and Movies

This is an evolving list of adoption related reading materials. By no means have we read all of these books---this is just a list we have compiled through the years of recommended readings. If you have reviewed any of these books on your blog, please send a link and we'd be happy to link to your site! Also feel free to email us curdsandkimchi (at) with recommendations or suggestions.
