Summary, etc.:
"In 2008, Ann and Dan made the life-altering decision to start a family. In their mid-forties and inspired by various stories that they had heard, the couple decided to adopt special needs children through foster care. Not wanting to separate siblings, Ann and Dan's family eventually grows to seven, first with the adoption of Jimmy and Ruby, and then Jason, Susie, and Anthony. Poignant and heartfelt, We Adopted Five Special-Needs Foster Kids is for any reader who has ever been part of a family." -- Provided by publisher.
