Synopsis

As would-be parents cycle through the adoption process, they balance anxiety and fear with the life-altering decision of adoption. The emotional toll of this dance can be completely overwhelming and can confuse parents while navigating the decisions of how to expand their families. Utilizing extensive research and the author's own experience, Labor of the Heart does not gloss over the realties of the adoption process, but rather leads parents through the many stages and emotional impacts the process involves.
