Adoption Affirmations provides you positive thoughts to say to yourself for each part of your adoption journey and even some for your loved ones to say. You will also find a few tender thoughts that your child-to-be may say to you someday. There are nearly 80 affirmations in all to help you remain hopeful, confront your fears with grace, feel in control during the highs and lows, and increase your joy. Adoption Affirmations is unique in that it is also a flipbook of a growing tree to provide you visual inspiration. As your hope grows, so too does the realization of your own family tree.
I wish Adoption Affirmations was around years ago when I went through the adoption process. The book is a wonderful resource. May it inspire you to adopt, especially since there are so many children of all ages out there who need you.
