Paperback - Reframing Adoption

Inspired by a birthmother who searched for material about the unique grief experience of mothers who had chosen to gift their child through adoption to another family, Reframing Adoption addresses the biblical grief model that is applicable to not only the brave choice of adoption but to all types of loss.

Using the story of Moses as an example of open adoption the birth mother can trust with confidence that God blesses those decision to chose life. Even when the decision is so right, the grief experience is still painful and confusing. It is our prayer that those that read Reframing Adoption will move from the darkness and often shame to a sense of contentment and peace.

Included in the book are quotes from birthmothers, information on the processing of loss by the birth family (birth father, grandparents and other siblings) as well as poetry and information on coping skills.
