In her new book, A Place I Didn’t Belong – Hope for Adoptive Moms (Carpenter’s Son Publishing, June 1, 2013), Paula Freeman explores a painful reality of some adoptions: Things don’t always work out as planned. Unmet expectations, a child’s compromised beginnings, and emotional wounds carried into the process can undermine often-fragile adoptive bonds.
“Based on my personal and professional experience with adoption, I understand the unique struggles many adoptive families face,” says Freeman, former executive director of Hope’s Promise, a Colorado-based adoption and orphan-care ministry, and an adoptive mom herself. “I wrote this book not only to give voice to their pain, but to validate their experience and offer hope for the future.”
“A Place I Didn’t Belong” released in bookstores on June 1, 2013, and is also available at www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com, among other online sites. Learn more about the book and the author at
