Should be titled "Called to Infant Adoption"

This is a wonderful introductory overview to adoption overall, but is especially well sure to those who are experiencing infertility and considering infant adoption. That is not our family's situation. We have two biological sons, and are not necessarily interested in an infant. It would have been very meaningful for me to have the prayers etc. say "your child" rather than "your baby."

That said, I still found this book, especially the early chapters, helpful.
