    I was adopted at an early age by a loving, spiritual family. I’ve written a novel loosely based on my life about a young child growing up with her adoptive family. It is filled with fond remembrances of her childhood and being raised by loving adoptive parents. The character looks back at her life, recalling the special events and memories that shaped her life of love and faith. It is appropriately titled, ” I Remember Them.” I believe that my book is a good read for anyone who was adopted or has adopted children. I want readers to value their family members and the memories that are made with them.

    I would very much like to add “I Remember Them” by Juanita Campbell Rogers to the reading list.
