I was touched by this book I learned a lot about adoption and how it touches so many people and what an act of love it is I also learned many beautiful principles that I have thought about and applied in my life I ve been able to share these thoughts with others who are dealing with challenging situations I Love How True love how true are not limited to one set of circumstances This book is a good reminder of that I chose this book for my reuired reminder of that I chose this book for my reuired to become licenced for adoption in Illinois It is built on letters from people who have been participants in adoption in different ways birth motherfather adoptive motherfather birth grandmothergrandfather child placed for adoption case worker etc which is really great because you get a lot of different perspectives you begin to see things that you didn t know were there Every adoption is so different that not all the stories are directly applicable to your situation but they do offer glimpses into the myriad of emotions struggles and triumphs that many people never have the opportunity to discover That being said it s not the most revolutionary book it is simply a book that deals with an amazing process I would recommend it to anyone considering adoption I thought this book was excellent and everyone I have spoken to about it seems to agree It covers adoption specifically from the LDS Family Services perspective from every angle from the point of view of the caseworker the ecclesiastical leader the birth parents the birth parents families the adoptive parents and the adoptive parents extended family It also covers all of the options that a woman with an unplanned pregnancy has parenting abortion and adoption all from the view of a birth parent advocate and case worker What I loved most about it and what made it easy to read was that the entire book is pretty much the telling of stories of actual people the decisions they made and the outcome whether positive or negative for all those involved The second half of the book is actually made up of short contributions from people the case worker had actually worked with I found them beautiful and heart warming to read especially as an adoptive mother This book definitely gave me even respect for my son s birth mother and all women who face unplanned pregnancies and want to do right by their babies Gives an interesting perspective on what an LDS birth mother experiences during the adoption process Heartbreaking Not much insight on the adoptive couple side As many of you know we are in the process of adoption When we moved to Springville I was put into the Cub Scout program with the author no coincidence to.

For the Love of a Child The Journey of AdoptionG statistics and facts that I thought were important and well interesting The first part of the book is written by Monica as an LDS Family and well interesting The first part of the book is written by Monica as an LDS Family caseworker Though it was interesting gosh can t I think of a better word here I felt some of it was repetitive I attribute that however to reading this while I worked out having a harder time focusing and being overall too busy So perhaps I wasn t in the zone as I read it The second portion of the book is written by adoptive parents birthparents extended families on both sides and those children who have been adopted To me this was the best part of the book And again maybe it s because it aligns with a project I m currently working on and so it naturally interested me But reading these personalized stories and heartfelt accounts and testimonies that s what made the book so fantastic The first part seemed to talk about why adoption was the best option in certain circumstances I guess I already have strong feelings about adoption so maybe that s why it seemed redundant It was the writing from the birthmothers and grandparents etc that brought it home It s a good book and I think it s a good book to have on our shelves It s a fantastic book however for those who are struggling with the idea of adoption who are struggling to decide their overall stance on adoption for those who are trying to decide if they should choose adoption for their unborn baby and for those trying to decide if adoption is the right path for them in creating their family It is certainly A Great Book For great book for members who want to be supportive to the pregnant woman in their family choosing to place her baby for adoption and for the family members who will be welcoming a baby into their home through adoption I really only read the second half The first half is mostly for birth moms I didn t really learn anything new which I think was the purpose of me reading it If anyone would like to have my copy let me know Otherwise I ll probably DI it when we move out This entire book only references one incredibly specific adoption situation It is about unmarried LDS women placing their babies with infertile LDS families through LDS Family Services so that the child will have the blessings of a temple sealing and the couple will have the blessings of parenthood Now that LDS Family Services does not facilitate adoptions the majority of the book is outdated It may still be a helpful resource for pregnant unmarried LDS women and their friends family and ecclesiastical leaders but be aware that the book has a strong stance against single parenthood and portrays adoption as the right choice in every case. With examples of real experiences from a professional perspective as well as personal stories from people whose lives have been changed by adoption it is filled with useful information and important great hope. Me Through Monica s experience as a social worker to the pregnant teenagers she takes you on their The Second Cure journey s and the adoptive parentsourney s to the pregnant teenagers she takes you on their Essential Andhra Cookbook: With Hyderabadi and Telengana Specialities journey s and the adoptive parentsourney s favorite part of this book was reading the accoplishments the birth parents went on to have after they had put their baby for adoption I learned and now feel strongly that birth parents are heroic people learned and now feel strongly that birth parents are heroic people are being sealed together because of numerous unselfish sacrifices I expected this book to be about the The Sorcerer's Apprentice journey of adoption from the adoptive parents perspective about the challenge of infertility and the process of adoption Instead it was about the process for birth mothers It was a powerful book that moved me to tears than once as story after story is shared The author is a counselor with LDS Family Services and gives great insight into the situation of an unwed mother While I hope that I am never personally affected by this in my family I am grateful for the understanding and compassion I gained from this book The unselfish gift of a child from one mom to another is so powerful I loved this book because it gives you insight from every point of view perspective angle and person I especially loved the fact that all options were laid out for the birth mother and how supportive her caseworker would be in guiding her through all the possibilities giving her strength to overcome fears and hesitations I really enjoyed learning the inner workings of the whole process and how every person is really a piece of a beautiful puzzle There are so many people affected by the life of one single child It IS biased and it tells you right from the beginning I found it uplifting and I did cry a lot too It references The Family Proclamation and it is beautiful These birth mothers are truly the bravest most courageous people possibleI also kept thinking that anyone and everyone who knows of a woman in this situation should read this book so that she can make the best decisions for her child and ultimately herself Really I think everyone should read it in general so that we all have a better understanding of this process particularly as it relates to LDS Family Services I ve been wanting to read this book for awhile now I felt it was time to read it It s a book I knew I wanted to have on our bookshelf for that day when Callie is 16 and has certain uestionsthe day when sheust wants to read about adoption in her attempt to get some answers and figure things out in her own mind I thought this would be a good resource for the entire family So I bought and read the book It was a good book though different than what I expected for some reason It was filled with interestin.
