I thoroughly enjoyed reading Adoptymum. It took me back to so many conversations that we have had in the past about different scenarios and events that you mentioned in the book.
I could almost hear your voice when I was reading it as it felt like you were in the room talking to me!
It was a very heartfelt book, sad in places but with lots of humour. I thought that you covered so many issues really well and gave a real reflection of what life is like for your family. I imagine that you found it quite cathartic, getting a few things off of your chest along the way.
I am so proud to have been alongside you on your journey as an Adoptymum and proud of you and Adoptydad for producing the book and for all that you have achieved as parents to two children who without you would have likely had a much less positive future.
I wish you all the very best and I look forward to reading the next book!
I have really enjoyed reading your book AdoptyMum.
I read it with tears in my eyes whilst also laughing. It feels really genuine and the experiences were painted so clearly that it made me really feel part of your AdoptyFamily. I believe it teaches adoptive parents and any parents for that matter to just accept their children as they are, hoping for the best and trying anything to make them build a more secure, positive relationship. It also teaches parents to accept that parenting children in a way that meets their needs will not always be seen in a positive light by the others such as friends or other parents but that this is part and parcel of caring for children in a way that promotes their needs rather than pleasing the others.
I believe that anybody who is or has been touched by adoption should read this book as it is refreshing whilst also passing on knowledge and really useful experiences.
Thank you, I personally found it really useful.
