Adoption Book Review and Drawing

Awhile back, I answered a post requesting adoption stories for an upcoming book. I submitted one of our kids' adoption stories. Many months later, I received an email saying that my story had been accepted! The book is now available and I recently had an opportunity to read it.

The book is written by Michele Cervone Scott, herself an adoptive parent. It is a walk-through-the-process type of book with Biblical principals to help you along the way. Her story is woven throughout, with the addition of other adoptive family stories.

If you or a friend is just beginning the process, it is a wonderful resource, not only for 'how-to' information, but for emotional and spiritual support during the journey.

There are two give-away's associated with this book. One is a $50 Amazon gift card and the other is a free book. One entry gives you a chance to win the gift card and/or a book. You do not have to enter twice. You have until 11:59 PM EST on April 1st to enter. But don't wait because if you're like me, you'll forget! :) Michele Cervone Scott will chose the winners and they will be announced and notified the week of April 4th. To enter, go to:

"With your entry, you agree to accept email correspondence from Michele Cervone Scott and the referring blog as it pertains to this contest. The host author and bloggers promise not to misuse or share your email address. All entries must be received by 11:59 PM EST on Friday April 1, 2011. Winners will be announced and notified during the week of April 4, 2011."

The author has a website where you may learn more about her and/or purchase the book directly at .

Sorry it is so confusing. :( There is only one Amazon gift certificate available to win, but 8 books will be given away.
