Tapestry Books makes it easy to own this wonderful documentary, a worthy addition to any adoptive family’s DVD collection.
Adoption STAR’s prospective adoptive parent clients may recognize the title of this film, largely because we house it in our agency library AND because it’s listed on an agency document that outlines how clients can go about obtaining educational credits as a part of the adoption process. We feel watching this DVD is time well spent; we actually require all new Adoption STAR employees to watch is as a part of their new employee training at the agency!
“I Have Roots and Branches” is particularly valuable for prospective and current adoptive parents because it features adoptees of varying ages describing first-hand how it feels to have been adopted. The commentary from the adoptees provides insight into the common experiences that they’ve had growing up in their homes, surrounded by the families they know and love. The film conveys a positive, encouraging and honest message about adoption.
The film also has great potential value for adoptees….especially children. There is no doubt that adopted children who are in the midst of contemplating their personal journey will have their feelings about adoption validated as they see and hear from the adoptees featured in the film.
Tapestry Books, the premier literary and multimedia resource for adoptive families, birth families, adoptees and adoption professionals, is happy to announce that they are now selling “I Have Roots and Branches” via their website.
