From the Author
I sent out many hundreds of invitations to adoptive families to contribute vignettes from their adoption experiences. The responses from adoptees and their families is what you find in this book. All contributions were included, so there is a spectrum of experiences and points of view. One adoptive mom wrote to me because she was concerned that the book would show only a "sugar-coated" side of adoption. Nope. This book tells about challenges and tough experiences as well as the positives. I was amazed throughout the project at how honest and open the contributors were.
From the Inside Flap
"As hard as adoption is for everyone involved, it is just as rewarding. I am adopted and know these things to be true. There has been much time, care, and love put into this book. It will help others understand the journey of adoption." ~Ashley, age 18
"Adoption is reaching into the unknown to help a child find a place in your heart. I applaud Teresa Kelleher for gathering stories and putting this book together. It will help prospective adoptive parents and will honor those who have contributed." ~Yevet Tenney
"It is a fine collection of individual stories and the many emotions of adoptees and adoptive parents." ~Lori Morse
"This collection is truly valuable, and will be useful to a wide range of people. I am so excited about 'Snowflakes, a Flurry of Adoption Stories. The section about difficult times is very important so that families can understand that there may be bumps along the road. It's a pleasure to read the stories written by adopted children and teens." ~MaryLee Lane
