Reviews - What do customers think about So You Want to Adopt...Now What?: A Practical Guide for Navigating the Adoption Process?
Religious book with an innaccurate title Oct 25, 2006
You can't tell from the summary that this is a Christian inspirational book, with numerous stories about people who have adopted and how God percieves this in scriptures. The title makes it sound like a how-to book for potential adoptive parents, but it has very little information on navigating the process and you'd be much better off finding a more detailed guide if that is your need. I'm sure this book will be wonderful to some people, but not the people they are marketing to with this summary and the failure to reveal the Christian emphasis.
