"Overextended....and loving most of it!" by Lisa Harper
Lisa shares stories from her own personal background, and how it shaped her into the person she is today. After watching her parents get a divorce, she experienced heartache at a very young age. She grew up knowing her biological father loved her the best way he could, but often times he didn't know how to express it, and she was left feeling abandoned by him.
Lisa goes on to share her struggles with failed adoptions and the heartbreaking reality of having "her" baby taken away from her, and finally the joy she experiences at the adoption of her precious HIV positive baby girl from Haiti.
I think Lisa Harper has an amazing way with words. From the very first chapter, she had me giggling right out loud. And then at other times, I was in tears over the agonizing pain of her failed adoption of her precious baby Anna Price.
This book is a beautiful blend of happiness and sorrow, and I think given the right opportunity, Lisa and I could be great friends...a kindred spirit.
I will happily recommend this book to others and I rate this book as 5 stars.
