Overview

'I love you, no matter what.'

An uplifting true story of an ordinary couple who build an extraordinary family, No Matter What describes how Sally and Rob Donovan embark upon a journey to adopt following a diagnosis of infertility.

Sally Donovan brings to life with characteristic wit and honesty the difficulties of living with infertility, their decision to adopt and the bewildering process involved. Finally matched with young siblings Jaymey and Harlee, Sally and Rob's joy turns to shock as they discover disturbing details of their children's past and realise that they must do everything it takes to heal their children.

By turns tragic, inspiring and hilarious, Sally and Rob's story offers a rare insight into the world of adoptive parents and just what it takes to bring love to the lives of traumatised children.

Meet the Author

Sally Donovan grew up in a small town in England and studied English at Exeter University. After 10 years working in commercial management, she retrained for a new career in horticulture, working for several years in historic gardens. In 2004, Sally and her husband Rob adopted two children from local authority care. Like many children adopted from within the UK today, Sally and Rob’s children had suffered neglect and abuse in their early lives. Together they have journeyed through the many challenges of building a family with children so profoundly affected by their early trauma.

Sally Donovan and her husband Rob adopted two children from local authority care in 2002. She is a writer, blogger and commentator on adoption, and was awarded the British Society of Magazine Editors Business Columnist of the Year 2013 for her regular columns in Community Care magazine. She now advises the UK Government on post-adoption support. She is also the author of The Unofficial Guide to Adoptive Parenting, published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
