Writer, blogger, and adoption expert Mary Ostyn shares her experiences of adopting six children, inspiring those who have been called to adopt and providing practical advice on how to make it work.
As a mother to one biological child and two current foster children that we were in hopes of adopting, I jumped at the chance to review this book. I was in the hopes that this would be able to speak to me on a spiritual level. I hoped that I would find a kindred spirit in the concerns that I was/am having.
I didn't get that at all.
Although this tale isn't what I thought it was, it is thoughtfully well written and if you are in a situation that isn't as extreme as mine - this is probably a good choice for you.
I did relate to some of the concerns Mary Ostyn describes, but it was more towards my relationship with my birth child. I think that this book is a good resource to be read after the process has ended and not during or before.
Overall, it is a good book, and well laid out. I do continue to pray for other mothers considering adoption, and for Ostyn and her walk that God has set forth for her.*
