I just wanted to show a couple of the books that Jeremy and I are currently reading.  Lifeline requires that we read these two books before our dossier can go to China.  There are several other things as well, but this is my focus right now.  The Connected Child and Adoption Parenting are fantastic resources for parents.  I’ve been able to implement parts of this book with my kids today.  The Connected Child is a book that you can sit down and read from cover to cover.  Adoption Parenting has more of a “text” book feel to it.  I can see this being a resource that Jeremy and I use for years to come.  It’s not a book you sit down and read from start to finish.  You have to digest it over a period of time.  When situations arise with our daughter, I can see us turning to this book as a guide.  Parts of the book will be applicable to our situation and parts may not.  I’ve enjoyed reading them and learning more about myself and how I parent.  🙂

Blessings!!  Heidi
