- Challenges of navigating issues of identity when adopting across national, cultural, and racial lines
- Strong emotional bonds that form even without genetic relatedness
- How adoptive families can address the special needs of children who experienced early neglect and deprivation, thereby providing a supportive environment in which to flourish
