    "My wife and I were looking into adoption, and we wanted to read a book on it for more research and ideas. We saw One for the Murphys in the store, so we bought it. It was a good read and pretty enjoyable, but it wasn't really what we had in mind in terms of real knowledge for getting ready to adopt a child. This is just a fiction book, and not a how-to guide on the subject of adoption."

    "What a book! Adoption is such a dear subject; and it is such a beautiful way to show the love of Christ. Adoption is not an easy book to pick up, though. I'm always a little weary of what will spill out of the pages when I find a book on a meaty subject. But I have high hopes for Adopted For Life. I love how the first chapter starts. "

    "This book is a practical guide to adoption. What the parent needs to know and learn and how to be able to react with the children. There are so many stages that children and adults go thru for adoption and this gives insight. If I were to adopt, this would be something I would be purchasing this."

    "All The Broken Pieces has shown me that what I have gone through in my life is nothing compared to what some people have gone through. Not only has it made me feel better being in my current situation, but it has also made me very thankful and gave me insight into what it's like to be a war refugee. "

    "This book is ok. It is not that well written and a very predictable story. The tone, overall feel, and main plot line are tired and have been written countless times. There are much better novels out there about adoption. Avoid this garbage!"
