Books I am reading
Attaching in Adoption by Deborah Gray
This book is required reading by Christian World Adoption.
This book is required reading by God.
Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey
This is my bookgroup’s read for June and July. It is a great book on Christian worldview. I have good intentions of catching up with my group by the July meeting, if I can put down my adoption-related books.
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
I am reading this to my daughter, A. who is seven.
The Endless Steppe by Esther Hautzig
I am reading this autobiography to S. (13) and I. (11), (who thinks he might like to be called “Rusty” on my blog – but I’m not sure I can remember to do it). This is one of the last books we are reading for our school year from our Sonlight Curriculum.
Books I plan to read soon:
Black Baby White Hands: A View from the Crib by Jaiya John
I’m Chocolate; You’re Vanilla: Raising Healthy Black and Bi-racial Children in a Race Conscious World by Marguerite Wright.
Two other books to recommend:
Love in the Driest Season: A Family Memoir by Neely Tucker
I read this book as we were making our decision to adopt and it was excellent. It is not always easy to read, but the persistence of these parents in their attempts to bring their child home from Zimbabwe is admirable.
Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More than Peers by Gordon Neufield and Gordon Mate
I ordered this book from the library and decided to buy it in order have more time to consider the topic. I love the title!
If anybody would like to recommend more good reads, particularly about family or adoption, feel free to leave them as a comment. Favorite books for children are also welcome!
Thank you for reading.
