In the book Love You More, Jennifer Grant describes the triumphs and hardships of adopting her daughter, Mia, from Guatemala. Jennifer and her husband had three biological children but always felt that they would adopt a child. When the opportunity arose they decided to adopt a child from Guatemala. As Jennifer explains, this was not an easy or quick decision but one that was carefully thought out.
Jennifer does a wonderful job describing the adoption process and the difficulty that some people face in waiting for this process to be completed. For some the process is quick, while for others it is a very long process. Unfortunately for Jennifer a long wait was part of her journey. She discusses her feelings during this time of waiting and how she long for Mia to home with her. Once Mia is home with her, Jennifer is very real in sharing her joy and her hardships. Her joy comes from loving this beautiful little girl who she believed was designed to be a part of her family. Her hardships come from trying to help Mia adapt to a new life while still caring for her other three children. I enjoyed this book as I found it to be an easy and a quick read. I found it both informative and interesting.
