AT ANY COST
by Mike and Hayley Jones
Overcoming Every Obstacle To Bring Our Children Home
When Mike and Hayley set out to adopt a child from Sierra Leone, Africa, never in their wildest imaginations did they dream this venture would lead to the “Jones Dozen.” This dramatically moving story will amaze and inspire any reader. Their stunning observation: “It was the least we could do!” Mike and Hayley Jones set out to adopt one, or maybe two, African children. They had no idea where this chaotic, inter-continental road would take them. How could a search for a child explode into a tribe of eight young kids—who didn’t speak English? The nation of Sierra Leone had no formal adoption process, causing Mike and Hayley to spend many months in Africa that involved more than ten lengthy trips. at any cost traces a heart-wrenching 34-month journey in response to God’s call to Africa. They escaped Sierra Leone before the Ebola crisis racked that nation. You will be inspired.
Cassandra's Review- I was delighted to spend time with this family. While I believe that there are so many children here in the USA that desperately need homes and food etc and that our nation needs to take care of itself before trying to help anyone else. I do understand that not everyone views this issue the same way. I am not against helping other countries at all, it is just that I see so many children even in my own state and town that could really use the help. The book is an inspiration to all to go and spread your faith and love to every child all over the world. It is a reward in itself.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Mike and Hayley Jones already had two biological sons (ages 1 and 5) when they decided the time was right to pursue adoption. After a 3-year process, the family now calls themselves the “Jones Dozen.” all eight adopted children (ranging in age from 6 to 16) are biological siblings, comprised of seven boys and one girl, who came from a family where the father had died and the mother was unable to support the family. the Joneses make their home in Thompson Station, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville.
