Building on previous books by the author, "Hospitious Adoption: How Hospitality Empowers Children and Transforms Adoption" examines the next step after open adoption.

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.
