You are not alone on this journey.
 
Adopting or fostering a child brings a unique set of challenges that only a parent facing the same situation could possibly understand. Sometimes it can be a struggle just getting through the day when you deal with children with traumatic pasts, attachment issues, and kids with special needs.
 
Mike Berry understands the loneliness and isolation in your unique parenting role because he's been there, and he's still there. He wants to offer hope and encouragement to the struggling adoptive parents.
 
While there are plenty of how-to guides on parenting, this book stands out in its approach to address the needs of parents with adopted or foster children. Seasoned with a refreshing dose of honesty, empathy, and care, you will learn you are not alone and God has a very special plan for you and your family.
