Houston, TX, October 08, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Delana understands the adoption process and the need for families to adopt waiting children. She experienced firsthand waiting, hoping, and believing God would answer her family’s prayer for a daughter. Closed doors, rejection, stacks of paperwork, and more waiting marked the journey.
Delana drew from her decade of experiences to write a book to help others considering adoption. “Adoption is not for everyone,” Delana says, “but I do think everyone should be involved in adoption in some way (if not adopting a child then supporting adoptive families, supporting orphan ministries, etc.).”
She wrote Nine Year Pregnancy to raise adoption awareness and to encourage families who are waiting a long time to see adoption finalized in their families. And, she says, “I wanted couples to consider carefully the age of the child they are adopting. Families adopting older children should read everything they can about dealing with reactive attachment disorder, dealing with grief, dealing with learning delays and other special needs that they might face from their child’s development or institutionalization or other issues.”
Because Nine Year Pregnancy tells the journey of nine years of waiting and praying, followed by a year of labor and delivery, chapters cover phases of the paper pregnancy, such as: conception, expecting, heartbeat, false contractions, bed rest, and real contractions.
Due to Delana’s desire to help families understand the challenges faced the first year, from meeting your child to dealing with reactive attachment disorder and special needs, she includes chapters on labor, delivery, newborn, homecoming, crawling, and forever family.
Nine Year Pregnancy is available from CrossBooks and other book distributors. Readers can find excerpts and autographed copies at 9yrpregnancy.com. Delana lives with her family just outside Houston, Texas. If you have ever had to wait on God to answer a prayer, you will want to read Nine Year Pregnancy.
