Building on previous books by the author, "Hospitious Adoption: How Hospitality Empowers Children and Transforms Adoption" examines the next step after open adoption. Gritter takes the approach that practicing goodwill, respect, and courage within the realm of adoption makes the process move smoother and enriches children's lives. Following a Foreword (Randolph Severson), Introduction, and Toward Hospitable Adoption Language, the book includes thirteen chapters: (1) Old Dogs and Farmers: Hospitality as the Gateway to Connection; (2) The Ethic of Hospitality: "Strange and Amazing Things Can Happen"; (3) Savoring Hospitality's Welcome: Through the Eyes of the Stranger; (4) The Dynamic Potential of Hospitality: The Adoptive Child as Emerging Host; (5) Hospitality's Sweetest Rule: Feeling at Home with Each Other; (6) Natal Hospitality: The Art of Gentle Transition; (7) Inverted Hospitality: Working Through a Change of Heart; (8) Doing Hospitality: Working with Differences; (9) Hospitious Availability: Privacy as Friend and Foe; (10) Welcoming the Welcomers: How Agencies Make Room for Programs Based on Hospitality; (11) Child-Centered Hospitality: The Next Phase of Openness; (12) Speaking Personally: Hospitality as an Expression of Faith; and (13) Questions and Answers: Hospitious Implications and Applications. (Contains 1 footnote.) Acknowledgments and author information conclude the book.
