For a brief video review of DVD .

The viewer will find information presented in an easy-to-understand and engaging conversational style, with beautiful pictures of children and their adoptive families included throughout.


Important questions to encourage reflection and discussion about the reality that an adoptive family will likely experience are posed throughout the series.  Of particular value are the interviews with adoption professionals, more than 100 Adoptive Family Perspectives and over 25 Adoptee Perspectives, where their feelings and experiences with adoption have been graciously shared and incorporated throughout the program. The IATP program is not simply a meeting of the minimum requirements for adoption education; rather, it is a clear and comprehensive training for the family that desires to truly understand and prepare for adopting a child from another country.

Upon completion, the viewer will have a thorough understanding of international adoption issues and should use the information presented to continue with preparation for parenting the internationally adopted child.
