Thankfully, there is one business created specifically for the adoption world: Tapestry Books.
Tapestry Books sells books targeted towards potential adoptive parents, those who have adopted, and children who are adopted. Unlike many larger bookstores, you’ll find a wider selection of books on both international and domestic adoption. They even have a section on adoption baby books and lifebooks. It’s refreshing to visit a bookstore where you can purchase a book filled with knowledge about adoption, and pick up a great gift too (for you or a friend who’s adopting).
Tapestry Books also provides an entire section on their website devoted to books written by case workers, social workers, doctors, lawyers, and other adoption related professionals.
When you first visit the Tapestry Books website, I think you’ll be amazed at the sheer amount of adoption books—right there on the front page. You don’t have to go on endless searches, hoping that the company may have one of the adoption books you’re looking for. Simply pick a category at the left hand side of the page, including:
- About Adoption
- International Adoption
- Domestic Adoption
- Adopted Children
- Adoption Parenting
- Adoption Life Books
- Adoption Triad
- Adoption Professionals
- DVD’s and CD’s
- Free resources

Disclosure: I was made aware of Tapestry Books through a posting on the Bella Online Adoption forum. I have not personally used them to purchase an adoption book, but would not hesitate to do so after seeing their phenomenal selection of adoption literature.
