God Places the Lonely in Families: Adopting Through The Foster System By Adam and Jamie Clark
Paperback: $8.92
Prints in 3-5 business days
When we took our first steps into the adoption process, we were eager to learn from others who had blazed this trail before us. Searching bookstores for any wisdom that might help avoid known... More > pitfalls and apply proven practices, we quickly found publications on the adoption process, some on adopting infants, and plenty providing advice on international adoptions. However, books providing counsel on adopting foster children (especially older children), were hard to come by. What you hold in your hands is our humble attempt to write that book. The lessons and real-life examples that you find in this book were forged in the ups and downs, laughter and tears, successes and failures of the last two decades. In these pages you will find an overview of the foster-adoption process, tips for working with state and legal entities, principles and approaches to adoptive parenting, real-life experiences that illustrate those principles, and techniques for effectively folding a child into your family.< Less

Have you ever wanted to know what NOT to be when you grow up? Well this book is a prime example of that. They say once you are in a drug gang you never get out, this is true. Anthony was 19 years... More > old when he passed away. When Anthony was 17 years old he came to me and told me we needed to plan his funeral. I didn't bat an eye because at that age he had already been shot at and stabbed. He told me he didn't think he would live to be 18 years old and I agreed with him. That day we sat down and planned his funeral. He told me the song he wanted played at his funeral so I burned it to a CD and put it up until the day I would need it. Your child should NEVER come to you at such a young age and tell you that the two of you need to plan their funeral based on the choices they are making in life. My biggest fear was that when Anthony died his body would never be found and I would never get to tell him bye. My son ended up dying in my arms and that was such a blessing to me.< Less
