About three years ago at a blogger’s dinner for the Dot.Mom conference, I had the privilege of sitting next to Sara Hagerty with some time to talk for awhile. As a fellow adoptive momma, I felt an immediate kinship with her, and an understanding of some of her life. But the evening left me wishing I’d had time to visit longer, as I could tell that she is a beautiful person and I just knew there was a lot more to her story than we’d really had time to talk about. I had the sense there was lots more to know.
So when I heard a few months ago that her book had just been released, I was thrilled, and eager for this chance to know a little more about how God had been working in Sara’s family. Every Bitter Thing Is Sweet: Tasting the Goodness of God in All Things is a deeply thoughtful, sometimes heartbreaking, always truthful telling of Sara’s story through infertility toward adoption. Whether or not you have experienced infertility or adoption, I think you’ll find her story to be compelling.
I have the privilege of giving away a copy of Sara’s book to one lucky reader this week. I am planning on selecting a winner on Monday, and to enter the drawing, all you have to do is comment below. Simply tell me you’re interested in the book, or if you’d like, share one sweet blessing in your life this week.
One thing I’m enjoying is my new co-workers at the hospital. They’re smart and funny and energetic, and I’m looking forward to knowing them better.
If you would like an additional entry for this giveaway, share this post on facebook or twitter, and then come back to comment again and tell me you did so. And as long as you’re in the giveaway mode, you may also want to go over to Copperlight Woods where Shannon is doing another adoption book giveaway, featuring her book Upside Down and my book Forever Mom!
