Samenvatting

Becoming a Mother is the first book published in Ireland exploring the complexity of adoption from the perspective of an adoptive parent. It draws on a combination of seminal and modern texts and personal memoir to present a unique view of what it means to be an adoptive parent in Ireland today. The book has a particular focus on intercountry adoptive parenting, and also looks at adoption from the viewpoints of the adopted person and birth parent. A dearth of literature exploring adoption exists on Irish bookshelves. Becoming a Mother seeks to fill that void by exploring issues around the topic of adoption: the secrecy and silence that still pervades adoption, the primal desire to parent that drives adoptive parenting, the tumultuousness of search and reunion, and more. It includes shared experiences and tips on bonding with the adopted child as well as a look at parenthood for the adopted person.


Becoming a Mother will be of interest to the estimated 10 per cent of the Irish population connected to adoption in some way, including the 5,000 children who were adopted from abroad. The book has been included as essential reading on preparatory courses for prospective adoptive parents and also on Barnardos' post-adoptive service reading list.
