This is a true story of one man’s journey to fatherhood. His wife from the moment they married wanted to be a mother. Eric was happy being a dual income family with the freedom to travel and pursue education with no encumbrances. After several years of marriage and no pregnancy they were both tested and found they both had issues. To please his wife they checked into possible adoption, although he wasn’t totally gung-ho on the idea.
I loved how his feelings began to slowly change as his story continued. He also got some valuable advice from a friend who had already traveled this road three times. The road to adoption is a very complicated and expensive pursuit. He tells of the application process, some of the questions asked on all the forms and why they chose the agency they did despite it being more costly than some of the others. Interestingly I learned that Foster Parents go through a more rigorous process than adoptive parents. That’s something I did not know. I would easily recommend this book for any couple or individual thinking of fostering or adopting.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher through Celebrate Lit but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise. All opinions are my own.
