Quick and easy to read for those who are busy, this book also offers deep and introspective topics that are important to any parent. The questions that follow each devotion are wonderful for a group discussion or for the individual. This is one book that I will keep by my desk, and refer to it each week. Simply a great book for today's parents!" -Dr. John DeGarmo, adoptive and foster parent, and author of eight parenting books, including The Foster Parenting Manual: A Practical Guide to Creating a Loving, Safe and Stable Home and Keeping Foster Children Safe Online: Positive Strategies to Prevent Cyberbullying, Inappropriate Contact and Other Digital Dangers "For me, one of the hardest and most faith-testing parts of adoption is the waiting. Encouragement is something that all moms need but there is an extra layer of complexity and brokenness to coming to motherhood through adoption. I wish I'd have had a devotional/journal like this when we were in the process of adoption and I'd recommend it to any mom who is just beginning her adoption journey - or any mom who is a mom through adoption. Beautiful, inspiring and healing!" -Jill Robbins, mom by adoption and birth, and writer of the blog Ripped Jeans and Bifocals
