Adopted for Daily Life: A Devotional For Adopting Moms




Have you ever told God that he picked the wrong woman? That you're not ready for what he's throwing at you in the midst of your adoption, or that you're not prepared to parent the particular child you're adopting? Have you ever been lost in the paperwork, waiting, and curveballs? Or felt like you're all alone, with no one who really understands what your family is going through? Take heart, dear friend, because this book was designed just for you.

Adopted for Daily Life: A Devotional for Adopting Moms is a collection of daily readings to encourage and support adopting moms. No matter where you are in the process, this book provides six months of readings to keep you focused on the Author of Life, the Creator of Family, and our Guide in Adoption.

Each week, moms who've been there offer insight on life topics as they relate to adoption, in the form of five daily selections. The five-minute readings are rooted in scripture, to ensure you stay grounded safely in God's Word throughout the adoption journey. The contributing moms represent families grown through both domestic and foreign adoptions from all over the world, including China, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Poland, Korea, and Ethiopia.
