Brings us back to the core truth the hope we have in Jesus Christ even in the biggest storms of Foster/Adoptive parenting.Validates one's "feeling alone or isolated" on this journey and sage wisdom in finding others who are on the journey with you... REAL. Book - 2017. This book was very timely in my life as an adoptive parent and the overriding theme that "you are not alone" was felt throughout the book. Even though the road is long and sometimes grueling, Mike continually leads us back to the hope we have not only for our children's futures, but for all of us in Christ."

Non-Christians should approach Berry's memoir much as if they would other non-fictional works that profusely quote from other philosophies without a second thought and read the text likewise for inspiration. This book cuts right to the heart of a foster parent's greatest joys and hardest struggles.
