Love You More

Love You More is Jennifer Grant's memoir about her adoption of her youngest daughter, Mia. Grant's writing style is compelling, drawing the reader in right from the start, and moving naturally from phase to phase in the narrative. Drawing from her Christian background and strong faith, she shares her realisation of God's calling for her. 

This is a deeply personal account, an open and honest retelling of how a mother and daughter bond was established, and how this overcame the odds set against them during the adoption process and beyond. It is also very informative, and serves to challenge the many negative views towards overseas adoption, and the relationship between the adoptive parent and child. 

This is a heart rending read; one that will have you on the edge of your seat, at times laughing and at others moved even to the verge of tears. This is definitely a book for parents, or anyone interested in the adoption process, particularly overseas adoption. 

What was particularly moving was the sheer love conveyed throughout the narrative. This is a memoir written by a mother who loves her daughter so much that she wants to share her incredible story with the world!
