How I Met My Son

Advance praise for How I Met My Son
‘Whether you have no children, have been through IVF, fostered, adopted or borne biological children, this stunning warts-and-all account of the yearning to parent is a must-read. Powell's experiences, told with such particular and often heart-rending hilarity, speak to the universal questions we all ask of our parents, partners, friends and ultimately of ourselves.’
Cate Blanchett

‘Honest, funny, and, crucially, helpful to anyone who has ever had difficulty conceiving or considered adoption, this is required reading.’
Emma Thompson

‘Not only those who adopt or foster will want to read this book: the emotions of all concerned are beautifully handled in Ros Powell's touching and gripping account of adopting a small stranger who becomes her son. Thought-provoking, entertaining and informative; love and determination spring out of every page.’
Joanna Lumley

‘This is an honest account of dealing with the hurtful reality of infertility and the difficult, often tortuous process of adoption. But despite the frustrations, it's a story of immense optimism in which Gabriel, the little boy who is now the author's son, is the star.’
Sir Martin Narey, Government Adviser on Adoption

‘I wish this book had been around when I was first looking at adoption. A real chink of light in those dim days of searching to become a mother.’
Lisa Faulkner
