Wait No More is the story of “Team Rosati”, as affectionately named by Kelly & John Rosati. After several years of marriage and not being able to get pregnant, Kelly and John believed that the plan God had for them was adoption. From that experience this book was born.
Readers get to experience adoption through the U.S. foster care system as seen through the eyes of Kelly and John. They share the highs, the lows and the in-betweens. They also share openly and honestly about their first foster care placement and how it emotionally wiped them out. That one month with their temporary placement nearly soured them on the entire process, but thankfully after rest and prayer the Rosatis’ decided to adopt. And because of their decision to try again, four beautiful children now have a forever home!
This book isn’t so much about how to adopt, it is simply one family’s story of their incredible journey. Even if adoption isn’t in your future, this book is still a wonderful read. I happen to enjoy personal memoirs and learning about other people’s lives. One of the things that has resonated with me the most, is that because the U.S. doesn’t have orphanages, it’s sometimes easy to forget that we do have orphans here in America that need homes.
At the back of the book, there are some resources listed if you would like to learn more about adoption.
From the Publisher:There are over 130 million orphans worldwide. The pro-life/pro-choice debate continues to consume politics and everyday conversations. Readers want to know what they can do to make a difference on these issues. Wait No More tells Kelly and John Rosati’s story of experiencing God more fully through the great blessings and challenges encountered during their journey to adopt four children from the U.S. foster care system. It is a story of God’s faithfulness to grow a beautiful family, through adoption, from the ashes of child abuse, neglect, and abandonment. The Rosatis strongly believe that God’s solution for orphaned children in the foster care system involves ordinary Christians desiring to live out an authentic pro-life commitment requiring action, not just words. Their story reveals how their beliefs challenged, enriched, and completely changed their family’s life.
