Название: The Handbook of International Adoption Medicine: A Guide for Physicians, Parents, and Providers
Авторы: Laurie C., Miller M.D.
This book is NOT just for pediatricians. In fact, it is incredibly useful for adoptive parents at many stages in the adoption process, including:
(a) those wanting reliable information about the general medical/health risks of different programs/countries;
(b) those wanting to know how much and what kind of medical information to expect at referral; and
(c) those who want background information about certain medical conditions that are more common for international adoptees than the general U.S. population.
The book's contents include a review of available literature on the more common medical issues by country/region. It also addresses prenatal exposure risks (e.g., to alcohol, drugs, smoking, and stress), immunization issues, travel and transition to the adoptive family, growth and development, infectious diseases, neurcognitive/behavioral problems, and other topics. Not surprisingly, the book has somewhat of a clinical feel but for all that is highly readable for the layperson.
