Book Review: Love You More

Love You MoreThe Divine Surprise of Adopting My Daughter

By Jennifer Grant 

My view:
     This author shares her adoption journey, but she also shares so much more. Jennifer Grant paints a picture with words of how her marriage was before children and how she and her husband changed. She shares doubts, dreams, and reality in a way that is easy to understand and relate to. She shares comments others have made about her choice to adopt a child of another nationality. This author writes in a way that leads to more introspection.  The first part of the book is about their family before adoption, the next about the long period of waiting and the adoption process. Resources are also shared.

Book Description

Following the invisible thread of connection between people who are seemingly intended to become family, journalist Jennifer Grant shares the deeply personal, often humorous story of adopting a fifteen-month-old girl from Guatemala when she was already the mother of three very young children.
Her family's journey is captured in stories that will encourage not only adoptive families but those who are curious about adoption or whose lives have been indirectly touched by it. Love You More explores universal themes such as parenthood, marriage, miscarriage, infertility, connection, destiny, true self, failure and stumbling, and redemption.
Sections include:
A Whisper
The Waiting 
Learning to Know
In Love You More, Jennifer describes the way she feels God has brought her family together and completed it with the adoption of her daughter.
