Tragically Taken

This book will change the way you view the adoption process in America

Within the pages of Chandra Moyer’s new book, Tragically Taken, ($11.99, paperback, 9781591603412) readers will be captivated by the riveting story of one family’s attempt to adopt two children in the Foster Care system. They soon discover resistance and experience the abusive power of an offended social worker. You’ll be touched at how God guides this mother to enter a struggle against powers of the state and becomes a voice for the voiceless. This book brings a long awaited public awareness to the critical condition of this nation’s Foster Care System and the need for reform. Chandra Moyer wants readers to understand that every year between 10-25% of adoptions fail in the United States. She stresses that situations as revealed in her book repeatedly happen when governmental officials abuse their powers as they sadly try to hide their own mishandling of children in the Foster Care.

“This book will change the way you view the adoption process in America,” states the author. “It is an eye opening account of how a family is left devastated when they sought assistance for a child they were adopting who was demonstrating an inability to bond due to mental health conditions. It proves that it is vital for prospective adoptive parents to receive information about children’s past histories in order to parent effectively.”

As a first time author, Moyer was thrilled by endorsements received from the review of her book, including the following:

“A profoundly moving, haunting, and courageous story of one family who, despite seeing the dark side of the Foster Care and adoption system, chooses to continue fighting to make things better for other children. Whether you are an adoptive parent, aspire to be an adoptive parent, and or just care about the future of our young people, this book will change the way that you understand how the adoption process works in America...” – Amy Blankson, Co-Founder of Good Think Inc.
