Publisher’s DescriptionFollowing the invisible thread of connection between people who are seemingly intended to become family, journalist Jennifer Grant shares the deeply personal, often humorous story of adopting a fifteen-month-old girl from Guatemala when she was already the mother of three very young children.
Her family's journey is captured in stories that will encourage not only adoptive families but those who are curious about adoption or whose lives have been indirectly touched by it. Love You More explores universal themes such as parenthood, marriage, miscarriage, infertility, connection, destiny, true self, failure and stumbling, and redemption.
My ReviewTo be honest, I’m not entirely sure why I read this book. While I support adoption, it is not an issue I am currently involved with. Regardless, it really caught my attention. The author honestly addresses common adoption concerns, including ‘you won’t love them as much’ and ‘it’s not the same as normal parenting.’ A good read for anyone interested, especially pro-life advocated who wish to promote an alternative to abortion.
I received a free copy of this book from BookSneeze but was not obligated to write a positive review.
