“How much did you pay for her? Forgiving the Words That Hurt Adoptive Families” by Christine Rhyner is a recently added resource to Tapestry Books and an amazing resource for adoptive families. This book is the first of its kind to directly discuss the ‘words that hurt adoptive families’ and how to forgive such words through faith.
Here is what author Christine Rhyner would like to tell you about this valuable resource:
“As I faced reproductive challenges to become a mother, I quickly realized that faith was necessary. As I entered the world of medical technology and then adoption, I also saw a great need for forgiveness. No matter how many books I read about others like me, none wove together faith and forgiveness as two bright and beautiful threads that make up the tapestry of adoption.
“How much did you pay for her? Forgiving the Words That Hurt Adoptive Families” demonstrates that the two are intertwined. If you or someone you know has ever heard things like, “Do you have any of your own kids?” or “Gee, they’re lucky to be adopted!” or even, “How much did you pay?” mine is a resource that discusses who needs to be forgiven, why, and how it is possible to do so. The benefits include freeing oneself up from the emotional baggage of resentment and bitterness to living a life of peace, acceptance, improved relationships and empowering our children to freely forgive those they encounter who don’t “get” adoption.”
