Product Description

Kelly and John Rosati never expected to adopt four children from the U.S. foster care system. But God's plan for them turned out to be even more extraordinary than they could have planned. Follow Kelly and John in their amazing journey through the child welfare system. You'll be inspired by the story of how God brought their family together, and challenged by their honest and revealing look at the desperate need of children still waiting for families. The Rosati's story is one of hope amid challenges, beauty from ashes, and faith that sustains. It's a beautiful picture of what family truly looks like.

    I chose to read this book b/c we are huge advocates for adoption and foster care. My husband & I have fostered for many years, in 3 different states. We have 6 children (2 bio & 4 adopted) as well as always having 3 foster children.

    This book is such a great read! She is downright funny, totally honest, and just a down to earth gal. I enjoyed every word. What I really love, is her honesty. Being a foster & adoptive parent myself, I could completely relate to so much of what she told. I wish more Christians would be open...I mean totally open, to how God calls us to care for these children...His children. It's no cake walk, but His way is the best.

    So please, take a minute to walk in her shoes & experience her journey...it's awesome!

    The Rosatis practice what they preach. Having adopted not one, nor two, but four children from the foster care system, the Rosatis have years of experience with the foster care system. They share their family's unique journey in their new book Wait No More.

    Filled with the ups and downs of their adoption experiences, the reader learns of the joy and heartbreaks of each child's journey to the Rosati family. There are painful moments when readers learn of some of the family situations of children in foster care, but above all there is a sense of triumph as God's grace and mercy flows through the pages. It is a book testifying to the love of God and the difference He has made, and continues to make, in one family following His leading. Whether you are considering adoption through the foster care system or not, I would recommend reading this book.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    Good story of ups&downs of foster-adoption

    In the mom's voice, they tell of the call of God to care about orphans, and how that led them to adoption. This also met their own need for children. Throughout their story God's plans worked with the desires of their hearts in a mysterious way that God uses to do good.

    I admire their courage to share the ups and downs of adoption. I wish we could have read this book before we adopted out of the foster system. They show the difficulties the foster care workers have in fulfilling their duties to try and reunite a child with their family, and at the same time trying to find a stable forever family for them to go to. I think this is God's will - to give grace to the families and to ultimately put the needs of the children first. The Rosati's do a great job of showing how frustrating that can appear from the point of view of the family who is fostering and bonding with the children. They strike a delicate balance between saying "we did a wonderful thing adopting these children" and "we're not super-parents." As a family who adopted one child through the foster system, and had to give one back to another family, we think this book is great for anyone considering adoption, especially from the foster system, and for those trying to understand what friends who are adopting are going through.

    Friends of ours from church recently adopted a child from overseas. This child was neglected and was, at the age of nine, smaller than their one year old. Since her adoption she has thrived.

    I shared this story because it was the main reason I wanted to read this book. The Rosati's didn't set out to adopt. They saw a need and felt God's Hand and went for it. Because they obeyed God's leading four children now have a forever home and the ministry of Wait No More was born.

    The need is so great and I know if you are like me you are probably thinking that what ever I do won't make a difference but that reminds me of the story of the man throwin clams back into the ocean and his friends saying that it wouldn't make a difference and he replied as a threw another one in the ocean "it does to that one"

    Even if you don't feel lead to adopt this book is good for encouraging you look around and find ways that you can help.
