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

Experiences of Single-Mother Doctoral Students as They Navigate Between the Educational System, Societal Expectations, and Parenting Their Children: A Phenomenological Approach By Meshkin B. AmiriRad
Paperback: $12.99

Among many factors, perhaps their confidence was shaped by cultural mantras in the United States, which proclaim that this is a country of opportunity where it is possible to pursue one’s... More > dreams and “reach the top of [one’s] potential,” as one of the participants indicated. Of relevance, there are a multitude of good reasons for women to leave abusive relationships in order to reach their full potential, and this was what many single-mother doctoral students have had to do. On one hand, societal expectations are on their side, encouraging them to leave the relationship. On the other hand, when they do leave, they often experience a crippling lack of cultural, societal, and programmatic support. When they left these relationships and decided to pursue their doctorates while being single parents to their children, they were often marginalized by their universities’ doctoral programs and faculty, by peers, and by what should have been their support systems.< Less

I truly hope that truth can become accepted in the way that it should be applied, with a true, rich and meaningful coexistence between all that has been created in this universe, for the benefit of all that will reciprocate its essence!!!< Less
