Anna West5 Stars Out Of 5September 29, 2010Anna WestThis 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.
Kerry Lopez5 Stars Out Of 5June 24, 2010Kerry LopezWe 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.

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!
Leslie5 Stars Out Of 5August 15, 2009LeslieI 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!
