Have you ever adopted or thought of adoption? This book is a sweet novel about the journey of Lauren Bailey as she goes about the process of adopting a child from China. You will go through the ups and downs of the process with her as you read “Before I Called You Mine”. It is also a novel that shows you sometimes the plans you have and the way you think things should go are not always what God has planned. Sometimes God goes about things in a far different but better way then you would have come up with. He does not always take you the easy route because He wants you to rely on Him and not yourself. If you are looking for a stereotypical happy ending then this book may not be for you. However, if you want to read a book that represents real life and is a really awesome tale of how God can use all things for good then this book is perfect for you.
