A Stirring Memoir on Parenthood and the Invisible Threads that Bind Us to Those We Are Meant to Love
The obstacles, surprises, and moments of grace that Jennifer Grant experienced, working through the adoption process to bring home her daughter from Guatemala, forever changed her life.
"Love You More" tells Grant's deeply personal story of adopting her daughter, Mia. The process confronted her notions about what family means, pushed her into uncomfortable places, and despite the waiting, adjustments, and challenges of a blended family brought abiding joy.
