I am a pediatric nurse at the hospital and this is the best book I've read that informed me on what happens behind the scenes. Day in and day out I see these types of cases where a mom abandons her infant and the child winds up in foster care. The author did a wonderful job on exploiting the information the public chooses to ignore.

WOW! I am left speechless by this book. A friend of mine referred me to this book because I was thinking of going the route of foster adoption. First, let me say I completed the book in one setting. It's a great book to read over the weekend or in your down time. Next, the author did an awesome job of breaking down the information on foster adoption in a way the average person, like myself who has no knowledge on the matter, can understand. This is a great book to read to hear from another foster parents perspective of what to expect on both sides; foster, adoption, birth parents and the system in a whole. I can happily say that I am definitley calling my local agency to find out more information and open my home. Although fostering a child can become complex the author shows you how it is worth the wait and why we should do it. Read the book you wont be disappointed.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. Thank you Itching for Books for letting me be a part of another great tour! Reading the blurb of this book I kind of got the feeling I should read this story, even if it’s going to break me into pieces. It was a wonderful read that thought me a lot, and I’ve seen how life can destroy you. I love it when I can learn some things after reading a book. Thank you Shane Morgan and Missy B. Salick for giving me the opportunity to read this book! Now, to begin telling you a little about it. Jordyn it’s our main character. The book sets off with her having a miscarriage. If her suffering wasn’t enough, she finds out her sister-in-law it’s pregnant again and she doesn’t deserve the baby. She is a drug addict, that it’s an terrible relationship with a horrible man. Jordyn decides to fight for the baby, for Jeremiah, especially after hearing Tori left him under the stairs. How a mother could do that, and then decides to fight for him?! I have no clue. Tori’s boyfriend decides to fight for the baby, not thinking one moment that maybe Jeremiah it’s better off without them. Jordyn fights for him even she is down and sick, and having panic attacks, she believes that Jeremiah it’s meant to be with her, that he is a part of this family. I loved the story and the contents about it, especially the ending. I couldn’t believe the author had the courage to tell about her past, about how she tried to adopt a baby. She finally succeeded, but in my opinion, going through things like this, will turn you into a powerful women. She should be proud. This book really thought me a lesson that I’m going to value all my life. Thank you! I highly recommend this book! It will open your eyes, to see the world as it is.

Awesome book. I figured it was going to be something like Losing Isaiah or The Blind side but it was completely different. It came from a different angle. I was very enlightened on the subject while entertained. The book left me wanting more cant wait for Part 2.
