Happy National Adoption Month!

More details here!
Hello friends! Proud adoptive mom Lee Tobin McClain here. November is National Adoption month, and since I think adoption is one fantastic way to form a family, I feature it often in my novels... including my upcoming Love Inspired novel, His Secret Child, coming in January.

My funny, smart, feisty daughter came into my life and my heart at age one in a hotel room in Chengdu, China. Raising her has been, and continues to be, a wonderful journey. I'm grabbing this opportunity to share a few of our family moments with you

Beach Vacation
My daughter is fourteen now, an athletic, social high schooler... where did the time go? I'm so proud of all she's accomplished and of the young woman she's becoming. She has been a real blessing to both her father and me. She is running toward the future at breakneck speed, growing up and building a life of her own, but she will always be my baby!

I didn't know November is National Adoption month. We're adoptive parents, too, 31 years ago on December our son came into our lives from Korea.

Thanks for sharing your pictures of your journey with your daughter. She is beautiful! Your upcoming book sounds great!

You're welcome, Jill! Jean, that is very cool. It's interesting how adoption needs change globally... Both Korea and China have fixed some of the social problems that led to the great need for adoptions. Sally, I have to agree that my daughter is beautiful, and I am crossing my fingers that readers like my new book when it comes out in January.

People stepping in a parenting, loving children that need it makes our world a better place. Reading this I just realized my last two books have major adoption themes. Can't wait to get you January book. The cover looks like a painting you want to walk through.
