Publisher's Summary

"No one just adopts."

From the very first steps of acknowledging adoption as a choice to the final document that seals the deal, Jody Cantrell Dyer paints a raw, warm, heartbreaking, and eventually triumphant portrayal that narrates the entire adoption process through compassionate and entertaining prose.

Dyer's candor and soul color the narration of The Eye of Adoption. She directly addresses the sorrows of infertility and the demands of adoption while consistently word-weaving a life rope of assurance, humor, and optimism for her listeners.

Dyer "tells it like it is" in hopes that waiting adoptive parents, birth parents, adoptees, and those close to them will find kinship through her story.

This second edition includes an in-depth interview between birth mother and adoptive mother, as well as a discussion guide for book clubs, church groups, parenting groups, social work agencies, adoptive/birth family support groups, and others.

A True Story of Heartbreak, Patience and Love

The Eye of Adoption is a beautiful true journey that will break your heart and make you cry with tears of absolute joy. I too understand this journey and the longing desire for a child. The story chronicles Jody, Jeff (her husband) and their handsome son Hudson long struggle with infertility, fertility treatments to finally deciding upon adoption to add to their family. Nikki Zakocs did an amazing job of bringing the true feelings and struggles of the pages. I highly recommend this book to anyone taking the long journey into adoption. I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed and this is my honest unbiased review.

Interesting

This was an interesting book. I knew some about adoption, but this was an eye-opener. It was a little slow in places; informative overall. Not a bad listen.

I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and have voluntarily left this review.
