What is Dear Lois?


  "Dear Lois:  Our Adoption Journey" was written by Amalie Bowling and Karen Schlindwein, both Chosen Board members.  It is a unique perspective of their family's adoption journey told through annual letters written to their family's birthmothers, by the adoptive parents as their children were growing up. The perspectives of the birth family, adoptive family, and adopted children take the reader on an emotional journey from the heartbreak of a couple facing infertility to the joy of family woven together through adoption.  All proceeds from "Dear Lois" are being made to Chosen.
