Jennifer Grant’s story of international adoption was intriguing to me. As a parent of an adopted child, I love reading other adoption stories. This book did not disappoint. However, since our adoption was from within the United States, reading about an international adoption added to our knowledge of the subject.
Love You More is written by an obviously gifted writer, and the book truly shares the heart of one who wanted to adopt, but had to go through many of the usual “hoops” of an international adoption. The daughter they adopted, Mia, is from Guatemala, a nation that made adoptions quite difficult while Grant and her husband were trying to finish the process.
One of the unique parts of the story of Mia’s adoption is that the Grant family already had children of their own, but had always thought about adopting. The Grants both worked overseas and enjoyed certain parts of the world, so adopting internationally was part of their heart. That adds to the flavor of the story.
Another nice feature of the book is that Grant is willing to publish some of the emails she sent to friends and family through the process, which adds to the “human” side of the book. The book is an easy read, but will pull at your heart strings. I highly recommend the volume.
I received a copy of Love You More for free from Booksneeze.com in exchange for this review. I was not required to publish a positive review.
