Hope When It’s Hard: A 30-Day Devotional For Adoptive Parents is more than encouragement for adoptive parents. It’s a lifeline. 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 emotional ups and downs that only another adoptive parent can understand.
Hope When It’s Hard offers words of encouragement to help adoptive parents navigate the emotional ups and downs 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, author Jennifer Phillips helps you find hope as you begin to see God’s adoptive heart toward you.
