Editor's Picks

Telling stories in photos is a wonderful expression of relationships, and our families are shown from every angle in these photographic essays. The best books convey the joy of creating a family but don’t overlook the pain and challenges.

1) Sacred Connections: Stories of Adoption
by Mary Ann Koenig, Niki Berg (photographer). The author bases her stories on interviews with a wide spectrum of triad members in open and closed adoptions, and the photographs tell the rest. A beautiful, sensitive book.

2) Parents at Last: Celebrating Adoption and the New Pathways to Parenthood
by Cynthia V. N. Peck, Wendy Wilkinson, Helen Kolikow Garber (photographer). Stories of 32 families - adoptive, blended, and created through new technologies, each photograph telling a story that (almost) doesn’t need the words.

3) Be My Baby: Parents & Children Talk About Adoption
by Gail Kinn, Ken Shung (photographer). Interviews with birth parents, adoptive parents, and adoptees make up the text of the book, punctuated with beautiful photographs.
