Will You Open Your Heart and Home to Children in Need?
As a teenager, Kristin Berry had heard all the horror stories surrounding foster care and adoption-abuse, neglect, rejection, anger, and misunderstandings. But instead of closing her heart, God opened it wide.
This is Kristin's honest, unvarnished story of her experiences as a foster parent of twenty-three children over the course of nine years.
What she learned is that living in a foster home is like living with a revolving door. You never know who will arrive or who you will have to say goodbye to. Leaving the door open means there will be heartache and pain, but also adventure and unexpected joy. Kristin and her husband, Mike, have been through it all in their unique parenting journey.
If you have ever wondered what it's really like to be a foster parent, this book will help you gain a true understanding of the everyday trials and triumphs these moms and dads face. It will also inspire you to consider opening your door&...and to leave it wide open.
Author KRISTIN BERRY and her husband Mike saw the need for foster parents after adopting their first child, and after having cared for 22 children, they are parents to seven more children, which they have adopted. Two have been diagnosed with a form of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD). There is no cure for FASD, but there is still hope and encouragement to be found for the millions of families affected by FASD. Kristen and Mike have their ministry at confessionsofanadoptiveparent.com, which has tens of thousands of visitors each month, and a popular podcast.
