Deniese Dillon, Co-founder and Executive Director Emeritus of Dillon International, Inc., leads us through forty plus years of work in international adoption and humanitarian aid in several countries. She presents the early years of the agency by sharing how God opens doors in His timing, which is not always convenient in our planning. She includes the stories of birth and adoptive families, revealing the trauma as well as the dramatic successful outcomes of international adoption. She points out the responsibility of agencies to continue follow up services long after the child is placed for adoption. She brings the reader through the struggles of diplomacy in working with various government entities in this country and abroad. She challenges all of us to put aside prideful differences, unnecessary paperwork, and redundant regulations that keep children from having a permanent loving family. She charges us as social work professionals, government officials, community and global leaders to act in the best interest of all vulnerable waiting children.
