About the author

Told from the perspective of a mom in the trenches with 6 very different adoptive experiences, the book is chock-full of helpful and practical advice. Because Mary weaves her personal story in throughout the book, it reads less like a "how-to" book and more like developing a friendship with a mom who has been there, and is still there. I finished the book encouraged and strengthened for our own adoptive journey.
One more thought: The author is a Christian and she shares freely from her faith perspective, but the advice in this book is sound even if you don't share Mary's faith. If you own only one adoption book, this is it!
Mary Ostyn writes with profound wisdom straight from the trenches. She will encourage you, equip you, and inspire you.
Her insight has helped us narrow down what we are looking for.
