“I had the absolute honor of speaking with Dawn Davenport, Executive Director of Creating a Family and adoption author, at the conference. Dawn’s knowledge of adoption, in all aspects, extends far beyond what has been published in her book. ‘The Complete Book of International Adoption‘ is one of the best books on international adoption in adoption literature.”

Dawn Davenport’s book “The Complete Book of International Adoption: A Step by Step Guide to Finding Your Child” was first published in 2006 and remains to be one of the top resources for those looking into international adoption. Dawn’s book provides information on all aspects of international adoption. This book discusses the many differences each country has from each other, as well as discussing the pros and cons of different international adoption agencies. At any point during one’s international adoption journey, “The Complete Book of International Adoption” provides accurate and detailed information. Order it today on Tapestry Books!

“I also had the honor of speaking with LeAnn Thieman, who has authored several ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ books including the newly published ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Joy of Adoption‘. LeAnn is an amazing speaker who is able to both light up and fill up a room with her voice. Her personal experience with nursing infants during the Vietnam Orphan Airlift is sure to shock and inspire those who read her story.”

LeAnn’s story in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Joy of Adoption” is one of 101 other inspiring stories that all pertain to adoption. This book is a revised addition of the previously published book, “Chicken Soup for the Adopted Soul”. Both books bring together true stories of forever families and meant-to-be situations.
