The journey of adoption is never easy, but it is one of love and growth that can be powerfully redemptive. Adoption transforms the pain felt by all involved as they experience the ways God works in the lives of so many people through one tiny child. For those struggling with the decision to adopt, support an adoption, or place a child for adoption, this book is a must read. With examples of real experiences from a professional perspective as well as personal stories from people whose lives have been changed by adoption, it is filled with useful information and, more important, great hope.

"I was brought to tears as I read the stories told about real-life birth parents who took a crisis pregnancy and created a miraculous gift. . . . It is a great resource for anyone facing an unwed pregnancy and a must-read for all who are involved in adoption." — Brad and Brenda Horrocks, adoptive parents and members of the National Board of Families Supporting Adoption

"Once in a great while, a book comes along that compels readers to pause and revisit long-held traditions and points of view. This is one of those rare books. . . . Read this book with care. Its contents will not only humble you but change your heart." — Steven A. Sunday, manager of Evaluation, Development, and Training for LDS Family Services and advisor to the National Board of Families Supporting Adoption

"What an amazing book! For the Love of a Child covers all the aspects of adoption and unwed pregnancy and is a great resource for birth families and adoptive families alike. . . . I would recommend this book to any bishop, stake president, Relief Society president, or family touched by adoption. Well done!" — Matt and Christine Oldroyd, adoptive parents and members of the Executive Board of Families Supporting Adoption.
