I decided to review this book as I have recently opened my home, and my heart, to foster care. But in all honesty, I never even realized the situations these children have already experienced that even most adults haven't. There is a lot of great information about adoption, agencies (as well as unrecognized agencies who participate in human trafficking), as well as the authors own personal adoption stories of how he adopted special needs children from other cultures. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about adoption or fostering or currently in the process. It certainly is an eye opener as to what these children go through, as well as the filth they are expose to even in an orphanage. Even if you are not open to either of these options, it may change your heart, and your life.
