    This book is a must read for couples thinking about adoption. It takes you through each step of the process and will be a book to go back and read again when the child gets older.

    We are in the process of researching our first adoption. This book gave me a ton of insight. I had already learned a lot online but at the end of each chapter, the author gives you a checklist of things to think about and things to do if you are ready to move forward. It also talks about adjusting once your adopted child comes home. I found it to be very comprehensive and I highly recommend to anyone considering adoption.

    On our journey of adoption my husband and I have read many books, but this one was a blessing, encouragement and offered the best practical advice of all that we've read! A must read for anyone considering adoption...you'll be encouraged.

    This is an amazingly comprehensive book about the different avenues of adoption. The information has been extremely helpful as my husband and I begin the adoption process. It addresses costs, forms, and agencys. I especially appreciate the Christian viewpoint and advice!

    I was captivated the moment I picked up this book. It mirrored my own thoughts and feelings. I couldn't believe someone could actually capture how I was feeling and how I have felt called to adopt so eloquently. I would highly recommend this book to all families thinking or already in the process of adopting. The scripture and God-like encouragement is priceless. I've read many books on the process and this book is by far the best; it cuts to the core of preparation...PRAYER! Thank you so much!
