Product Description

Mary Ostyn married her sweetheart at nineteen, and the pair had four kids by their eighth anniversary. When their youngest was three, God opened their eyes to the needs of orphans all over the world - and answered Mary's longing for another baby. Over the next nine years the couple adopted two boys from Korea and four girls from Ethiopia.

Ostyn, a beloved adoption writer and blogger, shares - alongside stories from other adoptive families - the practical tools and resources she uses to thrive as an adoptive mom. In Forever Mom, she reveals how to:

  • build heart connections
  • prepare your other children for new siblings
  • help babies, toddlers, and older children settle in
  • implement attachment parenting
  • address misbehavior while remaining connected
  • nurture your marriage in the midst of it all

Whether you're the parent of an adopted child or interested in pursuing adoption, Ostyn's warm advice and fresh perspective will inspire, inform, and affirm. You'll walk away confident you will be the perfect mom for whatever child God brings into your life.
