"I could not put this book down once I started reading it. Her writing and story are so captivating and heart wrenching at the same time. I love her honesty and vulnerability in sharing some very personal stories and feelings. Great for adoptive and foster families, and for families looking to support and encourage other families along their journeys. Beautiful book." ~NYoung
"Kristin's tenderhearted memoir of raising her adoptive son Alexander drew me in, and I found myself bartering, "Only 3 more pages, then I have to get the dishes done." And then of course, I read the whole next chapter, wholly ignoring the chores that needed my attention." ~Rachel, adoptive mother
"Born Broken is an authentic, painful account of one family's journey through fostering and adopting a son with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder. Kristin's words captivate the reader, drawing them into a less than picture perfect story that clearly mirrors the love Christ has for his children. It is a must-read for any foster/adoptive parent as well as those who desire to love them well and walk alongside them on the arduous journey." ~Murray, adoptive father
"As a mother of 2 bio kids, 2 adopted kids and 3 permanent fosters, with various issues and difficulties including suspected FASD with 2-3 of them - I could relate to many of the scenarios in this book. It was awesome to feel like someone else understood the struggles I face. Superbly written, heart-wrenching and yet encouraging - so real!! I love this book. It was hard to focus on anything else that I needed to do as I just wanted to keep reading. Thanks for the opportunity to hear your story." ~Tracey, adoptive mother
