Let me introduce you to MY BOOK!
Hello, I’m nervous. How are you?
This book has been on my heart for a year. I’ve been working on it for months already and only a few people have read any of it. And now? I want to share it with ALL OF YOU.
Here’s the thing you need to know: This is a book about adoption, but I don’t claim to know everything on the topic. That’s why this book isn’t really about my story. It’s about the stories we’re telling each other. It’s about not being afraid anymore, it’s about being honest about our reality without fearing what it might look like to others. It’s my attempt to be an honest voice, standing next to my sisters and brothers who are also speaking honestly, and asking others to join us. I just want to tell the truth. In the light of truth, Christ will be glorified.
So. This is absolutely my heart and soul, and I hope that comes across. Kyrie Eleison.
I would LOVE to hear what you think in the comments, especially if you’re an adoptive parent and you have a story to share (I’m incorporating as many stories as I can in the book). And yes, I know that I pronounce ‘treatise’ wrong. I also know new things about my mannerisms that I can’t un-know after watching my face move at such close range while I was editing this. (I’ve been re-reading my Love letter to my body and remembering that my face is part of it.)
