Love Our Way: A Mother's Story

Now in paperback, a courageous mother's story that gives new meaning to the word 'family'. Your children are not your children they are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself they come through you but not from you And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. Kahlil Gabran Managing a household of eight children is not for the faint-hearted. When you've adopted six children from overseas and succeeded in creating a riotiously happy family of ten, there's a good chance you can handle any challenge life throws at you. that's what Julia and Barry Rollings thought until they discovered that two of their children had not been willingly given up for adoption in India. Much worse, Akil and Sabila had been stolen from their mother while she slept - and sold by their father. How do you deal with such devastating news? Bow to the advice that 'You adopt the child, not the family'? Perhaps not tell the children until they are older - or not at all? But Julia Rollings is not one to take the easy road. She makes the courageous decision to reunite Akil and Sabi, 13 and 12, with their birth mother, Sunama, and her family. In Love Our Way Julia shares their moving journey of discovery to India and how it has expanded and enriched her family in more ways than one.
