There is enough depth to this book to truly help people. Adoption is not easy and this book is a gem. If you are experiencing problems, please consult this book.

Jen MGeneva, ALAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent, practical adviceFebruary 10, 2012Jen MGeneva, ALAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We are adopting 2 brothers from US foster care and have completed the 30 hour state required training- but this book is what we really needed. We must look at these children and ourselves as God looks at us. This book gives real examples of success as well as perseverance and patience to help us show the love and acceptance we have in Christ to a child. It also helps us judge success as a parent and the success of our children through God's eyes rather than worldly standards.
