Rod R

5 Stars – A compelling story of determination in the face of overwhelming odds.
Dr. Garry White’s autobiographical story chronicles his 30 plus years of trying to adopt and raise a son within a system prejudiced against single men with a history of emotional issues. Although the book is entitled, “My Quest”, it should have been more accurately titled, “My Struggles”, because he details the numerous obstacles and roadblocks to achieving his lifelong dream. From private adoption organizations to government agencies, Dr. White tells the story of a process mired in never ending home studies, psychological evaluations, and government red-tape with the end result always the same – rejection. While most men might have crumbled under the weight of such adversity, it appears to have strengthened Dr. White’s resolve. As he states in his book, “I will never give up.” As such, it is a testament to his determination against overwhelming odds.

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.
