You finally surrendered. You opened your heart when you said, Yes, God, I’ll adopt. But now, you’ve discovered that opening your heart to the idea of adoption is the easiest part of the journey. Now comes the reality of the emotional ups and downs that only another adoptive parent can understand.
In 30 Days of Hope for Adoptive Parents, author Jennifer Phillips shares words of encouragement to help adoptive parents navigate the emotional waters of adoption. Regardless of where you are in the process, just beginning or now living with the teenagers you adopted as infants, there are struggles unique to adoptive parenting. Weaving elements of her own journey through adoption, you will find hope as you begin to see God’s adoptive heart toward you.
Jennifer does a beautiful job capturing the fears, worries, excitement, pain, and hope that come during the adoption process, all while pointing us directly to Jesus and His glorious Word.Heather Platt, adoptive mom and wife to Dr. David Platt, (president of the International Mission Board and author of Radical)
I’ve prayed, dreamed, and longed for this book. The God who awaits you in these pages answered that prayer through my friend Jennifer Phillips. This is a powerful, honest, and beautiful devotional for families who have adopted, fostered, or contemplated either. Yet it is also for all of us no matter our journey, because in these pages, you will be captivated by a God who pursues you daily.Herbie Newell, Executive Director, Lifeline Children’s Services
