About this audiobook

Have you ever thought you’d adopt a child(ren), but finding out it costs thousands of dollars kicked that idea to the curb?

Most people believe that all children in foster care return to their biological families.

Many do not know that 50% of children in foster care need an adoptive family and that adopting children through foster care costs $0 - $2,500.

120,000 U.S. children who are ready to be adopted are hoping you’ll listen to this book.

“We are excited about this book that shines a light on the incredible opportunity to adopt children who are waiting and wishing for their forever family! Marcy helps to simplify what can be a complex process and helps readers overcome their fears and doubts and on behalf of the children who need us most.” -Rita Soronen, President & CEO, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption

“This book will help adults who are considering adoption to have one source with enough information to at least get started! It seems like a huge, impossible process when you don’t even know where to start which probably steers people away from pursuing adopting. If you have an idea of cost, who to talk to and where, and things to expect it doesn’t seem so scary! And it actually seems possible.” -Paula Pérez-Diaz, prospective adoptive parent

“Families who feel led to grow their family through adoption can feel very overwhelmed with all the information available. In this book, Marcy guides the reader through simple steps to take and she gives honest yet calming, emotional insights on this complex process.” -Emily Nienhuis, Director of One Heart Family Ministries
