Owlhaven is one of the very first blogs I read when we were beginning our adoption journey. Mary Ostyn, has been writing Owlhaven a few months longer than I’ve been writing One Thankful Mom. Over the years we’ve become friends and a few weekends ago we spent three days together on a retreat with a small group of other adoptive moms.

Last spring Mary asked if I would read her new book, Forever Mom: What to Expect When You’re Adopting, and if I liked it, write an endorsement. I was so honored – and so busy, with Noah and Katie’s wedding coming up. It took me a couple of weeks, but once I sat down to read, I couldn’t stop. I know my friends are amazing, so I expected to like Mary’s book, but I had no idea just how fantastic it would be.
As soon as I read the last word, I shot this off to Mary, “I love your book – I really do! Wow! It’s really, really good. What a blessing it is going to be to the adoption community.”
And then I wrote my endorsement,
Mary Ostyn is the mom you wish would mentor you in your adoption journey – and she does, through this encouraging and practical book. Forever Mom is PACKED with information you will inhale and then reach for again.
I heartily recommend Forever Mom to you. It is the perfect gift for folks getting ready to adopt and others who are several years into being adoptive parents. When I wrote that it is “PACKED with information,” I meant it. Mary managed to fit so much in her book and tell a good story at the same time.
