Successful Adoption: A Guide for Christian Families, written by Natalie Nichols Gillespie, is an informative guide on adoption. The book guides the reader through the journey of adoption and offers further explanation and understanding by using symbols. For example a Red Stop Light are questions to consider, ask oneself, and pray about before taking action. Green light, Go! are action points to apply in the adoption journey. Though there are heart warming stories from adoptive parents, there is also a real depth in discovering the joys of ministry in orphan care and adoption. This book is a good read while you wait for your child.
