Adoption

FAQ update

I've been promising to add Captain Serious's book recommendations to the FAQ forever, but life has been...interesting. Anyhoo, it might be time to update them overall.

So when you have the time, take a look at the current FAQs and see if there's something else you should be there. Currently we want to add a list of books to read (with various subtopics, like general parenting, general adoption, foster parenting, etc.), and possibly a topic addressing open vs closed adoptions.

TIA!

Re: FAQ update
