Over the course of the past three decades, Dr. Jane Aronson has touched the lives of thousands of adopted children from around the world and, in this inspiring book, she presents moving first-person testimonies from families whose lives have been blessed by adoption. This book introduces us to Claude Knobler, a writer from Los Angeles who travelled to Ethiopia to adopt his son and had an emotional encounter with the boy's courageous birth mother; actor Mary-Louise Parker, whose older son's bond with his adopted baby sister was magically instant and Lynn Danzker, an entrepreneur, who set off alone to adopt her son and in the process, met and married her husband. The authors range from teachers to filmmakers, from stay-at-home dads to celebrities - all of them bound by their transformative experiences as adoptive parents.

In 1997, her dedication to adoption medicine led her to create the Worldwide Orphans Foundation. She lives with her family - including adopted sons Ben and Des - in Maplewood, New Jersey.

Reviews

Praise for "Carried in Our Hearts" When I first heard Dr. Jane Aronson speak, she said Orphans are all our children all our responsibility. No one I have ever met takes that responsibility more seriously than Jane. I feel blessed to call her a friend and "Carried In Our Hearts "is an amazing account of thejourney that she and countless familieshave taken toward shepherding children through the process of finding permanent and loving homes. Hugh Jackman "Mother's Day gift alert! it's an unbelievable expression of love that will expand your idea of what a family is. Go buy it!" Amy Poehler Dr Jane Aaronson is a force of nature and one of the world s fiercest and most passionate defenders for the protection, well-being and human potential of orphaned children. For more than twenty years she has worked tirelessly to shine a light on the physical, intellectual and emotional needs of the millions of vulnerable children living in our world today, without parents or proper care, starved of love and hope, showing us that each and every one of these children s lives can be transformed when given the opportunity. Her wisdom, humanity and understanding are evidenced in the life affirming personal stories of unconditional love she has gathered in her extraordinary new book, "Carried in Our Hearts." Susan Bissell, Chief of Child Protection, UNICEF Her angle is incredibly pure and direct. It s her heart to as many hearts as she can possibly touch. Andrew Garfield, star of "The Amazing Spider-Man" "Jane Aronson is remarkable. Smart, committed, determined, her concern for children has taken her all over the world, and her understanding of their needs is unparalleled." Anderson Cooper To adopt a child is a divine act and Jane Aronson is a true angel. With passion and lightness she has lead an amazing life changing the destinies of so many children. This book is a testimony of her generosity and her life s work! Diane von Furstenberg "In this uplifting collection of essays, experienced adoption medicine leader Aronson (founder, Worldwide Orphans Foundation) gives hope to those choosing parenthood through adoption, confirming that the often bewildering amount of red tape, the glacial pace of applications, changing international laws, and the resulting roller-coaster ride of emotions is worth it." Library Journal "There is a wealth of information and hope here for people looking at possibilities for international adoption, and there is certainly no better advocate on the long journey than the upbeat, passionate Aronson." Publishers Weekly "Short, sweet, eye-opening thoughts on adoption and mixed-race parenthood."
