Not a full post, just two alerts — one an invitation and the other an announcement:

Lori Holden's book on open adoption1. Melissa at Stirrup Queens is graciously hosting a virtual book club tour of my book today. It feels a bit voyeuristic to listen in on conversations about my creation, but I’m enjoying myself immensely as I hop around to the blogs of the participants. The questions the participants asked each other are thoughtful and their responses are equally canny.

You are invited to read along, as well, and listen to what people are saying. (I’ll delurk and comment soon, and I’ll answer participant questions in a future post).

BIG thanks to Melissa.

2. This just in: The Open-Hearted Way to Open Adoption: Helping Your Child Grow Up Whole is now available on Kindle.

Favor: The book’s first wave is doing well, thanks to so many of you. As it ripples outward, one of my goals is for the book to find its way to adoption agencies so they have a resource for how to “do” openness. As we know, for years, adoption professionals have been telling their clients, both adopting and expecting, why to do open adoption without necessarily providing the resources for how. Now they have an easy and inexpensive way to support and empower parents on their lifelong journey.

If you are in a position to alert an agency/facilitator/attorney to this book, I would be grateful for you to do so.

BIG thanks to you.

Yay! Just bought it again to read on my phone. I felt terrible that I had to drop out of the book tour because I just couldn’t find the opportunity to read a hard cover book. It’s been sitting on my nightstand waiting for me, but the reality is that I only manage to read books on my phone while commuting and waiting for Sunshine to fall asleep. Too late for the book tour, but I will write a post. xoxo

Congratulations, Lori! My brother and his wife are in the process of adopting a baby – it’s not really open though (I don’t think, anyway…the birth mother can write letters and it’s up to my brother and his wife whether to include her in the baby’s life – is that open??). I’ll have him tell his agency about it!
By the way, I love your blog and your voice and am so happy to reconnect with you after all these years. Blogging is an amazing thing – and finding old friends makes it even more so.
