FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hope Deferred written by Andrea Harrington, adoptive parent from the Gladney Center for Adoption, is a poignant and honest account of Harrington’s emotional struggle with infertility and her journey to parenthood through the miracle of adoption.
Frank Garrott, President of the Gladney Center, penned the foreword to Hope Deferred. He writes, “Andrea looks back at the formation of her family with wisdom, humor, and pain as she recounts the events that led her and her husband to Pskov, Russia and ultimately to the adoption of their beautiful daughter and later their adorable son.”
Hope Deferred is an easy to read, honest, humorous and thought provoking look at the emotions, pain, humor, and joy that surrounds the adoption process. The book is divided into easy to read and easy to understand chapters chalked full of practical advice such as maintaining your marriage, the adoption process and the effects of becoming an “instant mommy”. Parts of the book are laugh out loud funny, especially when Harrington recounts some of the “ridiculous questions” friends and family asked her on the road to parenthood. This is a must read for anyone in the midst of infertility or about to embark on the adoption journey.
