“Wait No More” by kelly and John Rosati
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.
“Wait no More” is the story of one family’s developement through adoption. It is written mostly by Kelly and she shares very openly and honestly about their struggles as God grows their family one precious child at a time. Each child has a unique story and equally unique journey prior to joining Team Rosati (as they affectionately call their family). But Kelly and John see God’s hand moving through out each child’s life.
This book is not a “how to adopt” manual, but rather a family’s story. If you are considering adoption it is may be a real eye opener into the legal and physical issues faced by this family. And if you know a family who has adopted this will help you to understand their struggles and joys. While this story ended to be published in a book, I think that we will hear more from Team Rosati as they continue on the road God has for their family.
