Recommended Reading

I continue my quest for truth and knowledge in this wild world of fost/adopt, devouring as many books as I can before we get "the call". I'm mixing it up with serious books on coping with the hard core realities of abuse and neglect and the light hearted, hope filled adoption stories.

I finished a wonderful little book this weekend called, "Secret Thoughts of an Adoptive Mother" by Jana Wolff. Unable to conceive, she and her husband adopted a newborn baby boy through a private agency. Among their challenges and fears was their choice to go with an open adoption and raising a child of a different race.

Her honesty was a breath of fresh air. It makes you laugh out loud, cry and was a real eye opener. I am going to speak to our facilitator about adding it to the county's recommended reading list.

Just wanted to stop by and say welcome to ColoBloggers. (did I already do that? sorry, losing my mind).

The book looks interesting. I might have to add it to my list.
