Reviews - What do customers think about Adopting for Good: A Guide for People Considering Adoption?

Kidnapping Scandal Associated to this Author  Jul 24, 2004
I discovered a news article on a major Honduran newspaper, I think everybody should read...


The original Text in Spanish can be found in the Honduran newspaper La Prensa's website, just type the words LA PRENSA HONDURAS in Google or any other search engine, and then do a search in the newspaper's site, using the words ORPHANS OVERSEAS. This article can be easily translated using Google's language tools.

A true disappointment and a warning for all those interested in adopting, to make sure you contact legitimate agencies.

A Concerned Citizen
Excellent Christian Overview of Adoption  Jul 10, 2003
This easy-to-read book is a good first book for Christian couples considering adoption, especially if you don't quite know what direction to go. The stories are uplifting and humerous, and each chapter outlines a different aspect of adoption. Certainly not an end-all book, but an excellent place to start.
Absolutely the last book to read on the subject  Nov 21, 2002
There are some tremendously good books on adoption out there. I have read maybe 15 of them in the course of my own adventure to adopt, and this one is not one I would recommend as anything substantive that would guide prospective parents to the joys and trials of adoptions or as a source of any practical how-to advice.
A Hillsboro Heathen  Jul 4, 2002
I think that the author is very sincere and genuine, but unless you are a devout Christian, this book isn't for you.

This book may be of interest to those wanting to hear about the biblical justifications and ramifications of adoption, but there was far too little practical advice for the subtitle to be "A Guide for People Considering Adoption".

What little advice there is is surrounded by scripture and "lessons" from the Bible. For example, the book advises you go to 2 Corintians 3:4-5 to learn about self-esteem in children: "Such confidence is ours through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God". What? Besides making very little sense, is this useful information about how to acquire or raise or child? Each chapter is preceded by a quote from the Bible.

Overall, I would categorize this book as long on biblical rhetoric but short on logic. However, I did enjoy some of the anecdotes about the author's personal experiences with adoption.

Inspiring and touching  Sep 26, 1999
For those who are interested in adoption as means of buiding a family, Jorie Kincaid has written a heartfelt and spiritually based guide to help decide if this path is right for you. I first read this book on the airplane in route of adopting our second child and even now after the adoption of our third find it a lovely reminder of how wonderful and transforming the choice of adoption can be. If the idea of adopting a child to parent and love is in your heart, "Adopting for Good" gives many examples of how and why this is a wonderful choice!
