CELEBRATE This Week: XLVIII
I’m glad you are here to celebrate! Share a link to your blog post below and/or use #celebratelu to share celebrations on Twitter.
The Connected Child by Karyn Purvis, David Cross, and Wendy Lyons Sunshine is my celebration this week. I don’t tend to read many books about parenting adopted kids. I’m cautious of theories.
I think when a book is powerful it is mostly because of timing. It’s been our experience that 18-24 months after adopting an older child is the most difficult period of becoming a forever family.
Jordan joined our family 21 months ago.
I’m 23 pages in and this is hands down the best book I’ve ever read. It has already joined the best book ever ranks of Roxaboxen and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Book of Esther and Ruby Holler and Speak and Old Turtle and Miss Rumphius.
It is exactly what I need to read right now. What makes it even better is Andy is reading it too. I love him all over again for agreeing to a reading schedule. He stole my heart (once again) when he suggested coffee and cookies be a part of the nights we talk about the chapters.
I hope you link your celebrations below. Happy Saturday!
