Books We Love.

It’s really special when our podcast guests share their favorite resources. We have our favorites too!

We value all the voices of the adoption triad and want to help equip parents to navigate the day-to-day. If we put a book on our website, be assured that it’s come highly recommended (and even been discussed on the show!) or we have read it ourselves.

If you’re interested in purchasing one of these items for you or a friend, click the active link under each book title. If you choose to purchase through this link, 2 Adoptive Mamas gets a small percentage to help offset the costs of producing the podcast. Thanks in advance!

The Connected Child

When your child feels truly safe, doors swing open to positive change. 

Dr. Karen Purvis

Foster the Family

Every child is artfully and lovingly handcrafted by the Creator. Before time began, each child was loved and cherished and planned. All children were on the heart of the Savior as He bled in love.

The Open Hearted Way to Adoption

Adoption creates a split between a person’s biology and biography. Openness is a way to help heal that split.


Lori Holden

The Whole Brain Child

Too often we forget that discipline really means to teach, not to punish. A disciple is a student, not a recipient of behavioral consequences.

Daniel J. Siegel
