Editorial Reviews

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

Format: Paperback
My wife and I have been reading this wonderful book in preparation for our adoption. It has been a joy and delight to read the many heart warming stories from many different types of adoption experiences, both domestic and international. We especially appreciate the authenticity of these experiences as the book is a touching compilation of real stories shared by adoptees (children and teens) and their families. We wholeheartedly recommend reading this book before, during and after adoption as a rich resource for yourself, your child, family and friends.

I started reading this truly amazing book and I could not put it down until I finished. The personal experiences from all sides of adoption were so inspirational. I laughed, shed tears, and felt joy as I read the pages. Snowflakes: A Flurry of Adoption Stories is a must read. It expresses in words that families come in many forms and from many places, it is the love that binds them. Five stars are not enough - This book will enlighten and inpire you. Teresa, Katie, and Paul did a magnificent job of expressing all aspects of adoption. A heartfelt thanks to all that shared their experiences. This book is for all who appreciate the family unit and understand that all families are unique.
