Item Description...
Overview
An uplifting compilation of true adoption stories from the viewpoints of adoptees, birth mothers, and adopted family members.

Publishers Description
"Loved by Choice" offers a clear and uplifting look at adoption from virtually every perspective. It is comprised of true stories that reflect the joys and the difficulties of those touched by adoption. Families working out an overseas adoption, those creating interracial families, grandparents, birth mothers, and even birth fathers are among the many who tell their stories.
Two appendices define adoption terms and outline resources that will be helpful to those exploring adoption. The emphasis of "Loved by Choice, " though, is to demonstrate how adoption can complete a family. It's a poignant celebration of adoption, led by those who understand it best.
This book's pro-life, positive, and upbeat message will be a welcomed source for women facing pregnancy choices, anyone working with unwed mothers, adoptees, adoption advocates, pro-life advocates, couples considering adoption, and anyone else interested in stories that celebrate adoption. It is an ideal book for bookstores and libraries to display in November, which is Adoption Awareness Month. "Loved by Choice "will also be popular at the many adoption-related conferences, book readings, and fairs that take place around the world.

A Blessing to all  Dec 20, 2002
What a wonderful book. I rarely purchase books. This one had a title and cover that intrigued me. I couldn't put these heartwarming stories down. Truely "Loved by Choice" will be a blessing to all who read it.
 
LOVED BY CHOICE  Aug 12, 2002
AS THE MOTHER OF AN ADOPTED DAUGHTER, I FOUND THIS BOOK OF TRUE STORIES TO BE COMFORTING AND ENLIGHTENING. IT OPENED MY EYES TO MANY OF THE STRUGGLES MY DAUGHTER AND I HAVE EXPERIENCED OVER THE PAST 21YEARS. I FEEL THE MATERIAL IN THIS BOOK WAS TOTALLY A BLESSING AND I FEEL ANYONE WHO READS IT WOULD BE BLESSED.
 
Wish I'd read this one first  Jun 29, 2002
We're in the process of applying to adopt a child, and I've read about 23 books on the subject (all aspects). This one is by far the most encouraging!

I heard the authors on a national radio show, and couldn't wait to get their book. I was not disappointed. Wish I'd read this one FIRST.

There are stories from every---and I do mean e-v-e-r-y---point of view in the adoptive process, including family members on both sides, all written in first-person format. Particularly helpful were the chapters by birthmoms; they helped me come to understand and respect b-moms more than all the meetings at our agency put together.

Another thing I appreciated very much is that I got the distinct impression that the authors weren't skittish about pointing out the difficult aspects of becoming adoptive parents, including the excruciating waiting periods. Both domestic and international adoption were handled with honesty and accuracy, according to my own research. I'm pretty sure my copy will be dog-eared and well-worn before long. Now I want to get a copy for all the church and public libraries I know!

 
Adoptions from all perspectives--A Great Book!  Jun 20, 2002
If you are thinking about adoption, whether to adopt or to relinguish, Loved by Choice is for you. Perhaps you have a friend with personal adoption experience, then Loved by Choice is for them as well. This book is written from all perspectives; birth moms, dads, adoptive parents, siblings, grandparents. There are chapters on special needs and bi-racial adoptions and stories of international adoptions. All true, some heartwrenching, but all prove that adoption is the best choice for those in the stories. A great resource, encourager, examples, and even terms. Written in a way that you can read one or multiple stories at a sitting. Well worth your time.
