Amanda Barton has had a dream of writing a children's book that shows the realities, both good and hard in every adoption story. Her goal is a book that adds grace to both adopted children and their families as they discover the joys of adoption, even through the hard stuff.

That dream has become a reality with the help of co-author, Natalie Hart and illustrator, Joel Schoon-Tanis. The new book, "As Real as it Gets" has just been announced. Please visit for more information.
