Open Adoption, Open Heart

Profile Picture

I'm excited to share with you a book that I had the opportunity to read.  It's called Open Adoption, Open Heart by Russell Elkins.  Russell sent me an e-mail the other day, and he was gracious enough to give me an e-copy of his book to read.  This is a non-fiction book that tells the true story of Russell and his wife Jammie's first (of two) open adoptions.  The story is told matter-of-factly and accurately portrays the adoption process.  It doesn't dive too deeply into the emotions, and could be a good source of information for someone interested in pursuing an open adoption.  I'm excited to get to know Russell and Jammie better, and look forward to reading more of their stories in the future.

To learn more about Russell, go to www.russellelkins.com and look for Open Adoption, Open Heart on Facebook .

Once Upon A Baby: A Tale of Adoption

Profile Picture
I was contacted a while ago by a wonderful mom named Shari Guess whose son joined their family through adoption.  She's written a sweet book for young children about LDS adoption, and I had the opportunity to read it.  She provided a copy for me and my children (Thanks, Shari!!!), as well as a signed copy to give away.  So, if you'd like to win your very own copy, just leave a comment on this post, and you're entered!  I'll announce the winner by 8:00 am on Monday morning (July 9th).  Meanwhile, check out the book's web page:  www.OnceUponABabyBook.com or find it on Facebook.
