I decided to add in the books we finish for school. Obviously I'm reading them for the sake of my kids, but I'm still reading them. We read lots of books, so I'll just stick with the chapter books. Ready? Here goes.
To India With Love: The Biography of Carol Hastings, by Darlene Saunders
This is the story of Carol Hastings, a woman who spent 36 years sharing the Lord with the people of India. It starts with Carol's life in college and ends with her return from India. A fairly short book and easy read.
Hope Meadows: Real Life Stories of Healing and Caring from an Inspiring Community, by Wes Smith
This book was amazing! It's about a planned community in Illinois where foster kids who are hard to place find families, adoptive parents are supported as they take in kids, and elderly people get to love on needy kids. I would love, love, love to join a community like Hope Meadows!! Amazing program!!
Attaching In Adoption: Practical Tools For Today's Parents, by Deborah Gray
This is a gigantic book filled with tons of information, heartbreaking stories, practical ideas, and lots of resources. It was recommended read on the Sonlight Forums for people who desire to or have already adopted, ideally read before adopting.
The Year of Miss Agnes, by Kirkpatrick Hill
A neat story about a teacher who comes to a remote area of Alaska to teach. The students are expecting another in a long line of teachers who complain about them, but end up with a woman who truly cares about them.
