Author and adoptive mother Ann Sullivan shares her story of the struggles, challenges and successes she faced as she raised a daughter adopted from Russia at age 11. It is the story of failure and progress, of heartbreak and laughter, and of mistakes made and lessons learned.
When her daughter's therapist encouraged Sullivan to write a book about her experiences and hard-won victories, she set out to not only share her experiences, but to offer hope to other adoptive parents. She shares her challenges and successes as she helps her daughter come to terms with her traumatic past, and she offers the lessons she and other adoptive parents have learned along the way.
