Our Adoption Journey
£9.95 paperback CoramBAAF (2016)
'We’re preoccupied with thoughts of meeting Jessie…It’s like the feeling you have before a first date….butterflies in the stomach, nervous, nauseous. Will she like us? Will we bond?’
This is the true story of Jayne, Dan, their son Charlie, and their adoption of Jessie, a baby girl. Told by Jayne herself, this deeply personal memoir follows the joyful highs and heartbreaking lows of the journey that led them to their new adopted daughter.
Our Adoption Journey follows the family from their initial hopeful decision to adopt, to the eagerness and anxiety of preparation groups and meetings with social workers, to the breathtaking moment when they meet their daughter for the first time. But not everything runs smoothly along the way – and even once Jessie joins their family, learning to love and trust each other is something that can’t be rushed.
This is an enthralling, inspirational account of a family’s emotional journey to meeting their new daughter, and growing together as a family. Perfect for all those thinking about adopting, it honestly describes the family’s difficulties and joys, and gives a fascinating insight into the adoption process today.
Our Adoption Journey is the fifteenth title in CoramBAAF’s Our Story series which provides an insight into the highs and lows of adoption through the real-life experiences of a wide range of families.
