Chasing Kites: One Mother's Unexpected Journey Through Infertility, Adoption, and Foster Care
By Rachel McCracken
A Must Read for anyone who has ever Loved or Lost!
From the sterile isolation of infertility to the emotional rollercoaster of adoption and foster care, Rachel McCracken’s new book, Chasing Kites, weaves real-life experiences of struggle, heartache, and loss into a wonderful narrative of faith, hope, and the joy that can come through it all.
Rachel gets the heartache and the sorrow of the desolate valley called Infertility. She gets the dedication and work that it takes to blend a family. She gets the commitment and purpose needed to help children rise from the ashes of abandonment and fear.
For anyone who wonders:
What is an orphanage really like?
Can you really bond with an adopted or foster child?
What is it like to lose a child who is reunified with their birth parent?
Can you love an adopted or foster child as much as a biological child?
How about fertility treatments, are they actually that bad?
Why don’t people just adopt? What’s the big deal?
Chasing Kites answers all of these questions and more. Going from zero to four adopted children through a Colombian orphanage and then from four to seven through the US Foster Care System, Rachel writes a masterful memoir of the good, the bad, and the beautiful with purpose-driven life lessons learned from each.
If you have ever experienced loss, grief, or heartache this book is for you. If you are struggling to create a family or to blend a family this book is for you. If you are trying to support someone you love through any of these things, this book is for you.
Lose yourself in this delicious tale of love both lost and found.
