    For hurting mothers in any type of situation, but especially adoptive moms of challenged children, I highly recommend this book.

    While this book was written to give support to adoptive moms, I found it helpful for whatever life-draining anxiety a woman is experiencing. If you are a mother who feels you have failed in your role, and that sense of failure is attacking your sense of worth, this book is for you. For women who have are weighed down with unmet expectations in their adoption realities, who are dealing with the wounds, grief, and loss, as they try to raise their child who started off in the womb as a neglected and often abused baby.

    Years of wisdom from author Paula Freeman, who is an adoption expert and an adoptive mother, teach the reader the skills she needs to cope with that crippling sense of failure when their adopted child rejects them, or exhibits destructive behavior. Each chapter deals with a specific need, and follows up with step-by-step instructions for each day of the week, to guide the reader toward healthy mental, emotional, and physical life.

    I especially heard the cry of an adoptive mom in these words: Birth families injured our children, we behaved badly at times, husbands checked out, friends and family members failed us, adoption social workers and agencies misled us, and the list goes on.

    A refreshing quote from this book; Adoption is not an ivory tower of redemption, but a battle for the very souls of everyone involved. Adoption is a tangle of lives waiting to be woven into something beautiful.

    This amazing self-help book for adoptive moms of challenged children, actually helped me as a birth-mother work through some of my adoption issues, and deal with unresolved issues. Christine Lindsay, Author of Finding Sarah Finding Me: A Birthmother's Story.
