Review: Confessions of an Adoptive Parent by: Mike Berry

 Confessions of an Adoptive Parent: Hope and Help from the Trenches of Foster Care and Adoption
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
Know That You Are Not Alone on This Journey

Adopting or fostering a child brings its own unique set of challenges only another parent facing the same uphill climb could possibly understand. From parenting children with traumatic pasts, to dealing with attachment issues, to raising a child with special needs, it can sometimes be a struggle just getting through the day.

Mike Berry knows the loneliness and isolation you can easily feel in your particular parenting role—because he's been there. He's still there, and he wants to give you the hope and encouragement you so desperately need.

There are plenty of how-to guides out there on parenting, but this one-of-a-kind book is specifically designed to address your needs as a parent of an adopted or foster child. With a refreshing dose of honesty, empathy, and care, you'll discover you are definitely not alone on your journey and God has a very special plan for you and your family.

My Review:
 So whether or not you are an adoptive parent or foster parent there is tons to learn from the author. He has had struggles that he has taken from and to show us the in's and out's of something that could be amazing both in the eyes of the parent or the child.

 I love the fact that the author recommends finding a support system from the community. I really do believe that sharing your struggles and successes with others really helps in the immediate and in the long run.

 He offers you hope through all that he has learned but through Biblical teaching, as well. A great help!
