We 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.

I appreciate everyone taking the time to express their own personal feelings in this book. As a first time parent of an adopted daughter, I need as much information as possible.

This is one of the best books on post-adoption I have ever read. Every person who is considering or is in the process of adoption should read it!

I am only 1/3 into the book right now, but have found it to be a great resource. Easy reading (based on personal experiences) and knowlegable Christian based guidance that is practical and alerts one to the many possibilities of issues that may (and probably will) occur. This is the most comprehensive text I have yet read. We are certified as treatment foster parents now and going throught the certification process for a special needs adoption. Great book! Highly recommend!

I have justed started reading the book, but it is following very closely to the information we are learning in our pre-adoption classes through child protective services. Really enjoy the testimonies in the book from real people.
