Sometimes it is only through giving up our hearts that we learn to trust the Lord.
Adoption. It’s something that touches one in three people today, a word that will conjure different emotions in those people touched by it. A word that might represent the greatest hope…the greatest question…the greatest sacrifice. But most of all, it’s a word that represents God’s immense love for his people.
Join birth mother Christine Lindsay as she shares the heartaches, hopes, and epiphanies of her journey to reunion with the daughter she gave up...and to understanding her true identity in Christ along the way.
Through her story and glimpses into the lives of other families in the adoption triad, readers will see the beauty of our broken families, broken hearts, and broken dreams when we entrust them to our loving God.
Finding Sarah, Finding Me affected me deeply. As a person who has experienced adoption from both sides, its raw emotions scraped at my own unanswered questions. This is a book to read slowly, to savour and contemplate. Author Christine Lindsay bravely exposes her deepest sorrow, her grandest hopes and her one step forward, two steps back journey toward reconciliation. Her prose is beautifully exquisite, word pictures that stay with me and probe my preconceived ideas.
The realness of this story gives it great power. The additional stories by other adoptees and birth parents adds broader strokes to the picture of adoption. This is not a fluffy novel; it required several days for me to work through it. But it is an important work, one that could benefit everyone touched by adoption.
For these reasons, I award Finding Sarah, Finding Me five stars. Highly recommended.
I was given a copy of this book without any expectation of review.
