7 Lessons I Learned About Life, Love, and Parenting After We Adopted Our Son from Ethiopia
Claude Knobler

Already the biological parents of a seven-year-old son and a five-year-old daughter, Claude Knobler and his wife decided to adopt Nati, a five-year-old Ethiopian boy, who seemed different from Knobler in every conceivable way. After more than five years spent trying to turn his wild, silly, adopted African son into a quiet, neurotic Jewish guy like himself, Knobler realised the importance of having the courage to love, accept and let go of his children.

In this wonderfully written memoir, Knobler explains how his experiences raising Nati led him to learn a lesson that applied equally well to parenting his biological children - it's essential to spend the time we are given with our children to love them and enjoy them, rather than push and mould them into who we think they should be.
