Book # 27 / 100

I really slowed down on my book reading the last month or two for some reason. I have read 2 books in the last 3 days though so that's good. I'm still working through the Bible as well. Almost done with Isaiah and then on to Jeremiah.

Like Dandelion Dust by Karen Kingsbury

Jack and Molly Campbell are right where they want to be, enjoying an idyllic life with their four-year-old son Joey, and the close family and friends who live in their small hometown just outside Atlanta. Then the phone call comes from the social worker the Campbells never expected to hear from again. Three states away in Ohio, Joey's biological father has just been released from prison. He is ready to start life over, but not without his son.
A judge's quick decision deals a devastating blow to the Campbell family: Joey must be returned to his biological parents. The day after the ruling, in the silent haze of grief and utter disbelief, they watch their son pick a dandelion and blow the feathery seeds into the wind. (from Amazon)

This one was a tear jerker... I don't know if it's because of the road that Jack and I are currently on now, but this one was hard to read. It was basically about an adoptive family's worst fears... an adoption being reversed after almost 5 years!! It was a good book though :)
