We are guilty of many errors and many faults, but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer ‘Tomorrow,’ his name is today. ~ Gabriela Mistral ~
Come to the Window - Life with Daniela - Our Child from Romania

This is one family's story of their life with a child adopted from a Romanian orphanage, detailing the challenges and joys of raising a post-institutionalized child. The book deals with evaluations, schooling, discipline - also despair, hope, and acceptance. It was written for those families who have already adopted and those who are in the process. It was also written for the professionals in your life so they can see what it's like to walk in the shoes of an adoptive family of who is raising a post-institutionalized child. It has been praised and recommended by adoption experts such as Dr. Dana Johnson, Dr. Phillip Pearl, Dr. Deb Schell-Frank and Dr. Jerri Jenista. It has also been praised by the President and Ambassador of Romania. Dr. Victor Groza, the internationally known adoption researcher, wrote the foreword for the book, and his study of adopted Romanian children appears as an appendix.
