Carried in Our Hearts

The Gift of Adoption: Inspiring Stories of Families Created Across Continents
  • By Jane Aronson
"There is a wealth of information--and hope--here for people looking at possibilities for international adoption, and there is certainly no better advocate on the long journey than the upbeat, passionate Aronson." --Publishers Weekly

Over the course of the past three decades, Dr. Jane Aronson has touched the lives of thousands of adopted children from around the world, and in this inspiring book, she presents moving first-person testimonies from families whose lives have been blessed by adoption.

This book introduces us to Claude Knobler, a writer from Los Angeles who traveled to Ethiopia to adopt his son and had an emotional encounter with the boy's courageous birth mother; Weeds actor Mary-Louise Parker, whose older son's bond with his adopted baby sister was magically instant; and Lynn Danzker, an entrepreneur who set off alone to adopt her son, and in the process, met and married her husband. The authors range from teachers to filmmakers, from stay-at-home dads to celebrities--all of them bound by their transformative experiences as adoptive parents.

There are also adoption tales from Connie Britton (Nashville and Friday Night Lights), Kristin Davis (Sex and the City) and Shonda Rhimes (Scandal and Grey's Anatomy). The book also boasts a Foreword by Deborra-lee Furness (actress and wife of Hugh Jackman), who also shares a tale about their own adopted children.
