51oBlN+J5SL._SS500_Parenting the Hurt Child

Dr. Karyn Purvis (co-author of The Connected Child) has, by far, the best training program for raising children from hard places. Any parent can learn TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention) through the videos series. Another great option is finding an Empowered to Connect conference near you.

3.Favorite Adoption Theology book (also dog-eared)

adopted for Life

“Love of any kind brings risk, and, in a fallen world, brings hurt. Simeon tells our Lord’s mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, that a sword would pierce her heart. That’s true, in some sense for every mother, every father. Even beyond that, every adoption, every orphan, represents a tragedy. someone was killed, someone left, someone was impoverished, or someone was diseased. Wrapped up in each situation is some kind of hurt, and all that accompanies that. That’s the reason there really is no adoption that is not “special needs” adoption; you just might not know on the front end what those special needs are.”- Russell Moore

  1. Great list! There are a few on here I hadn’t even heard of that I’m going to need to take a peek at 🙂 including yours! I somehow missed the fact that you were an author! How neat.

    1. Erin, I hesitated about adding my book to the list, but it is my story, so I had better like it and a friend of mine has been encouraging me to share it instead of hiding it! There were so many great books shared in the link up, love it!

  2. Nice to “meet” you, fellow author. Congrats on your book! I’m going to check it out.

    I’m a fan of the work of Karyn Purvis. Good list here!

    I arrived from the AdoptionTalk linkup.

    1. Thanks Lori, it took a lot of guts for me to book my own book on the list because I don’t like promoting myself. But, it is my story. I will have to check out your book too! Thanks for stopping by. Nice to meet you through the link up!
