FAITH NEWS SERVICE – My Quest to Be a Single Dad: Thirty-Plus Years Trying to Adopt Will be Free to Download Tomorrow, April 4, 2023
United States—Monday, April 3, 2023
After more than 30 years of unsuccessful attempts to become an adoptive father, Garry White has released his memoir, My Quest to Be a Single Dad: Thirty-Plus Years Trying to Adopt. In the book, White explores the bias against male single-parent adoption and provides valuable tips on the do’s and don’ts of adoption.
White, who holds a master’s degree in psychology and a doctorate in computer education, has been trying to adopt since 1988. Despite his desire to provide a loving home for disadvantaged youth, he experienced only denial on what appears to be the bias against adoption by single men. He also faced challenges due to an isolated episode of treatment for a mental illness in the past.
In My Quest to Be a Single Dad: Thirty-Plus Years Trying to Adopt, White draws on his years of experience with adoption applications, home studies, and his knowledge of the social service system to provide helpful advice for those looking to adopt. He says “I wrote my book so that others could learn from my experiences and avoid snares and pitfalls that could derail the adoption process.”
My Quest to Be a Single Dad: Thirty-Plus Years Trying to Adopt will be available for free to download on Amazon for 5 days, April 4, 2023 through April 8, 2023. My Quest to be a Single Dad is rated 5 stars by those who purchased and reviewed the book.
One reviewer makes this statement:
My Quest to Be a Single Dad is the moving story of Garry White’s desire to provide love and stability for needy children. Garry opened my eyes to the flaws in today’s social service system—a flawed system at best if they continue to turn down such a wonderful candidate.
