Open Adoption, Open Heart Book Tour Giveaway
I can’t really describe to you all how much this story touches my heart. Adoption is something that is very hard for people and I understand how big of a change it can have in different people’s lives. It plays a huge impact on the individual giving their child up for adoption as well as for the family that is adopting the child. This is an amazing story, one that I feel is important for word to be spread. So, many people do not talk about this and I feel like it is something that needs to be discussed.
Open Adoption, Open Heart
The world of adoption has changed dramatically over the past twenty years. No longer do biological parents have to say goodbye to their child forever. They now have more options when deciding the type of adoption to pursue, such as open adoption. Open adoption creates the opportunity for a special relationship between biological parents, the adoptive parents, and the child.
Open Adoption, Open Heart is an inspiring and true story, which takes the reader deeper into the feelings and emotions experienced by adoptive parents. As you read this incredible story, you will experience the joys, difficulties, and amazing victories facing adoptive couples. Russell and his wife, Jammie, invite you to share in their inspiring and heartwarming journey.

From the Author: While my book’s primary audience was thought to be those hoping to
adopt, close to half of the books I’ve sold are simply people who want to read about our story and how
adoption is different now than it used to be- and they have not adopted nor do they plan to adopt.
