It’s Not About Adoption …. It’s about Family

No Biking In The House Without A Helment

I recently had the pleasure of a lazy week-end.  You know the kind.  The kind of week-end when it’s rainy outside, the house is a mess, the kids are off on their own adventures and you’ve got a new book to read.

My housework avoidance activity  was a new book by the fabulously funny and serious author, Melissa Fay Greene.

No Biking In The House Without A Helmet” is Ms. Greene’s fifth book and I’m sure the one closest to her heart.  A story about the formation of her family of nine children, the book is both heart-warming, entertaining, at times laugh-out-loud funny and always a good read.

I expected a book about the trials of adoption, what I got was a book about the trials of family, sibling rivalry and the incredible power of giving.

As the third child of a family of seven children,  I could relate to the issues of jealousy, territorial disputes and clashing personalities.  I could also relate to the bonds that form in spite of the differences.

I don’t want to give away too much of their story but I do want to recommend you spend a week-end avoiding the laundry,  sitting in your favorite chair reading this story.

(Yes, I did receive a free advanced copy of this book but it is now available at Amazon in both hardcover and Kindle versions)
