Second Chance by Sandra J. Gerencher

 A story that will delight you and touch your heart is what you will find in Second Chance: How Adoption Saved a Boy with Autism and His Shelter Dog by Sandra J. Gerencher.

Chance is a shelter dog who spends his day in a pen with his pal, Ruffles. One day, a woman and a boy come to the shelter. The boy jumps up and down with excitement and chews on the sleeve of his coat. Chance soon is getting hugs from all the people and the shelter and is taken by car to a new place, where he finds out he has been adopted, just like Ryan, the little boy who chews on his sleeve.  Problem is, he doesn’t know what adopted means. He knows that his new brother and sister, the Pomeranians, were also adopted, but they can’t tell him what it means. But soon Ryan explains all about being adopted and Chance is so very happy that he has a forever home.

This is such a sweet book. Told from Chance’s point of view, we follow him on his journey from meeting his new Mom and Ryan, to the drive home, to settling in and meeting his doggie brothers and sister–P.J., Little Rascal (who was not adopted), and Shelby, and the way things run around his new home. Chance has the curiosity of a child, so it is no surprise that he and Ryan connect so well.

What is so wonderful about Second Chance is that it carries with it the message of unconditional love. As Ryan explains all about the many foster homes he’s been in and finally being adopted by his new Mom, and the reader gets to listen to Chance’s thoughts on how his story is not very different from Ryan’s in many ways, the reader can see just how much of a blessing adoption can be when the right match is made.

Your family will love reading Second Chance by Sandra J. Gerencher. The many photos make it a special read aloud book that everyone will enjoy.

    1. Cheryl, I’m so glad that you enjoyed SECOND CHANCE. I really like the point you made that both Ryan and Chance are working together to define what adoption means to them. What a beautiful idea!

      Thank you for always helping us to promote our titles especially those written by real-life moms regarding their adopted kids. They live up to the adage that truth speaks louder than fiction.

      Best wishes,
