Instead of TV they are weaving

Do you remember this weaving loom when you were a kid?  I sure do!

In today's culture with the internet, facebook, smartphones, video games, TV, Ipad's, Ipod's and every other electronically gadget screaming for our kids attention.  It was refreshing to see this.  



They were not thrilled at first. 

BORING

  However, after  they got going they were laughing and having a blast. 

Well worth the $2.00

Love You More, The Divine Surprise of Adopting My Daughter

Jennifer Grant shares the story of how her adopted daughter, who was born in Guatemala, came to join their family. She shares why they choose to grow their family through adoption.  The author shares the roller coaster of emotions and piles of paper work that must be completed. 
 
I found this true story inspiring and well-written from cover to cover. I also found it difficult to put it down.  

I would highly recommend this book to those who are considering adoption or parent  who enjoy reading about the amazing journey of growing a family.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, courtesy of Thomas Nelson and the BookSneeze Blogger Program, for the purpose of review. All opinions expressed are my own, and I have not been compensated in any other manner.
