Summary
"All My Children actress Jill Larson moved mountains as a single mother to adopt her daughter from China. George Fadok, a former Navy commander, grappled with "changing the rules" eighteen years after placing his daughter in a closed adoption. Angela Paxton, wife of the Texas attorney general and an adoptee, never thought she would ever meet her birthmom, but when she did, it changed her life. Embarking on an adoption journey can be daunting, but now you are not alone! This collection of true, beautiful accounts, including Larson's, Fadok's, and Paxton's, takes an honest look at the process, the struggles, and the undeniable joy that comes with adoption. With insights from all three adoption triad viewpoints, Adopting Hope shares a wealth of lessons learned and tips for every person contemplating an adoption journey"--Amazon.com
