Book Review - Love You More

About the Book
Following the invisible thread of connection between people who are seemingly intended to become family, journalist Jennifer Grant shares the deeply personal, often humorous story of adopting a fifteen-month-old girl from Guatemala when she was already the mother of three very young children.
Her family's journey is captured in stories that will encourage not only adoptive families but those who are curious about adoption or whose lives have been indirectly touched by it. Love You More explores universal themes such as parenthood, marriage, miscarriage, infertility, connection, destiny, true self, failure and stumbling, and redemption.
Sections include:
A Whisper
The Waiting
Learning to Know

In Love You More, Jennifer describes the way she feels God has brought her family together and completed it with the adoption of her daughter.
My Take on the Book

This story hit home as I had a cousin that went through the whole process of adopting a child from Guatemala just like the author did in this story. It was a long journey, but they were steadfast and this book was a testament to the journey of not only the author but so many others who went though a similar journey in their path to become parents.

The author does an amazing job at sharing here experiences, both good and bad. What I liked most was her honesty and her willingness to not mince words, but instead to share her thoughts and experiences for all to see. 

You can also see in this story how God works in mysterious ways and how his hand was definitely guiding the author and her husband throughout this journey. 

The story was moving and inspirational and is a great book for anyone considering adoption to read and learn from. You will be engaged from beginning to end and you will be amazed at how your heart will be touched by this story!
