  • Love the look of this page.:-) After reading what you posted, perhaps my manuscript that I sent you (Bonded at Birth) will be the first book you complete reading. How about it? Up for a challenge?

    • Gloria, How I would love to have time to read your book. I am sure it is wonderful. Right now, I can’t promise anything….have three writing deadlines looming (Thankful for them, though!)
      Best,

  • As a Christian, I value and respect the Holy Bible. As an adoptive parent, I consider, “Twenty Things Every Adopted Kid Wished Their Adoptive Parents Knew”, the Bible of Adoption! If every court and social service entity provided this book to each new adoptive (prospective) parent, we would ALL sleep more nights, spend far less on therapy, and experience brighter days sooner, rather than later. It’s been said there is no “manual” on how to raise a child. However, after reading just a few chapters in “Twenty Things…”, I am convinced this book is indeed “The Manual” for successfully parenting an adopted child. Today, WE are incredibly thankful that you made the CHOICE to share your life with the world in such an open, candid way. I see my daughter in you. If you can make it…so will she…so will WE! Thank you for being YOU. My heartfelt gratitude. -Angela
