November is a very special month and some very special people celebrating their adoption experiences by giving away their incredibly good writing. Three authors have given away their adoption books so far in honor of National Adoption Month and there are two more still to go. These authors have two things in common: they have been touched by adoption and they all want to give back for their blessings by sharing their stories of adoption.
Many authors have written about adoption but very few have a selfless goal in publishing their stories. The group of authors who are part of this fellowship want those who are struggling with infertility to understand that adoption can be a viable path to completing a family. One author who recently gave away over 4,000 copies of her book, Eye of Adoption, speaks in a way that helps the reader see their own path to adoption, complete with warnings and advice. Another author offers a practical, helpful guide to adoption in his book 7 Steps to Domestic Infant Adoption. A third author, offered her book From Pain to Parenthood earlier in the month and hopes to help people who have suffered miscarriages and are contemplating adoption. This coming weekend, Debbie Barrow Michael is offering But the Greatest of These is Love for free. Her book gives an international side of the adoption story and like the other books, is getting great reviews. Links to these books will be found at the end of this article. Several of these generous authors have also reduced their prices following their FREE promotions in honor of National Adoption Month.
I will offer my book March into My Heart: a Memoir of Mothers, Daughters, and Adoption for free on Monday, November 25 and Tuesday, November 26. As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, my book gives a personal account of my struggle to find my daughter after losing my mother to cancer. Through my book, I hope to give hope to the millions of people fighting infertility, coping with loss, and striving to fulfill a lifelong dream.
One reviewer wrote: “March Into My Heart will inspire you, uplift you, and move you to tears. Written in an authentic voice, this is a compelling read for those grappling with infertility or adoption issues, as well as those who want an up-close look at one family’s remarkable journey. Thoroughly engaging, Patty Lazarus treats sensitive topics with warmth and candor. An honest and intriguing memoir.”
My daughter’s adoption occurred over eleven years ago and she is a dream come true. Like the other authors mentioned above, I hope that people will take advantage of this special offer, read my story and share it with others.
