Great Resource for adoption information Sep 18, 2008
Complete guide in every area of adoption and if you're a Christian it tells you reasons why adopting in line with scripture and even lists Jesus and Moses as being adoptive plus a long list of famous people. Makes you feel really hopeful about the possibilities but is also realistic about all the things that can go wrong. Very helpful tool.
Very comprehensive and compassionate Feb 18, 2008
This book is 300% better than the first adoption book I chose to learn about this delicate subject. It has helped tremendously in reconciling feelings about adoption and my faith, as well as provide useful information in a very clear presentation. A must-read for anyone considering adoption!
Comprehensive! Nov 25, 2007
This book is so comprehensive and informative. It covers every kind of adoption - foster care, state, private, domestic and international. It has tips for paying for your adoption and lots of inspirational stories at the end of each chapter. I highly recommend this book and can't wait until we bring our own little one home!
Must Read Book for Christian Families Considering Adoption Nov 25, 2007
This book was very well written in both its content and sentiment. Some adoption guides are technical and hard to read and I found this book to be neither. In addition to having great information regarding the various aspects of adoption, there are heart warming stories from adoptive parents and adoptees whose names you will recognize. This book is a must read!
Excellent information on adoption May 12, 2007
My husband and I felt more confident about going through all of the steps of adoption after reading this book. This book tells you what the different types of adoption there are and what steps are necessary in each case. It is very detailed and helpful.
If you are considering adoption, this is a wonderful resource.
