Adoption quotes contain the ups and downs of adoption and being a parent. There is no doubt that there are challenges to overcome as a parent of an adopted child or parents of fostered children,
but, the dedication, compassion, and love shine through. Each author cited has a message that imparts both knowledge and emotions. And, it isn't that various levels and differing emotions won't be present,
it is more apt to say that all of life has its' specific and unique challenges.
