Adopting from foster care can be complicated. Let's tackle the misconceptions. Special needs. Birth parent visits. A revolving door of case workers. Conversations about race. These are aspects of the foster adoption process that are often daunting, and easily misunderstood. This book will change the way you look at adopting from foster care.
One Year - April Swiger. "Three hundred and sixty five days ago Adam and I unpacked our car after a week at the Cape. Sand still between our toes and sunscreen residue on our skin. We ate our Nardelli’s sandwiches, surrounded by beach chairs and suitcases on our kitchen floor. I lifted our empty plates from the table to place in the sink and my phone rang. I knew by the ringtone that it was our case worker. I knew before we even said “hello” that our lives were about to change."
“The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad" - April Swiger. "If our little J stays, God is good. If he leaves, God is still good. Either way, I pray my heart would cry “The Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.” If our time with J does come to an end, I can’t imagine believing that every second with him wasn’t ordained by God. Each second being his mommy has been, and always will be, an enormous privilege."
