Wait No More
In this book, Kelly and John Rosati share the story of how they adopted each of their four children from the foster care system. Each child has a special story of how they were brought into their "forever family", and I really enjoyed reading how each story unfolded, finishing the book easily in one weekend. Kids are messy...and four kids are exponentially messy! So to read the story of this couple voluntarily entering into their mess and loving each child with a forever-kind-of-love was beautiful! This was an honest account, so there are failure and success stories included. I was shocked to find out there are 107,000 orphaned children here in the US. We have well over 300,000 churches in the US, so if every three churches in the U.S. combined to adopt and support one child, we
would have no more orphans in our country! This book inspired me to come alongside others in any way I can to help them in this difficult process of adoption. I would encourage anyone who has an interest in adoption, especially through the foster care system, to read this book.
