Children of Dreams: An Adoption Memoir by Lorilyn Roberts is a beautiful memoir of the author and her story which will encourage many readers to pursue their dreams of adoption. The author's story is one of struggle, hope, and fulfillment, and she tells how her pain and suffering pale in comparison to what God does for us. The author's journey of adoption also shows the inheritance awaiting us when we reach heaven through God's adoption of us. Her adoption of her two daughters, one from Nepal and one from Vietnam, is a must-read for all those who are preparing to adopt, going through a foreign adoption process, would like to know about the corruption, heartache, and cultural challenges that would stand in the way of adopting, and also the kind of commitment a parent should make to bring a child home.

The author's pain and struggles are heart wrenching, palpable, and relatable to readers. The memoir is honest and the author takes readers into her world and will make them appreciate and respect all those parents who adopt children and take care of them. The memoir is also a journey of self-discovery where the author discovers her faith and trust in God being reiterated through experiences while dealing with people and situations. Her adoption journey is a unique journey that will inspire and motivate readers to be confident and go through an established agency while adopting. It's a fascinating memoir, especially for all those who are thinking of adoption.
