Claiming Jeremiah by Missy B.Salick Book Review

On the same night that twenty four-year-old Jordyn Sims has a miscarriage, her sister-in-law Tori Sims conceives a child. Nine months later, Tori, a long term heroin addict, abandons her two-hour-old drug addicted newborn Jeremiah, in a hospital stairwell. Jordyn receives the news and pursues foster adoption. However, Oscar, Tori's possessive drug-addicted boyfriend, is not about to give Jeremiah up so easily.
While in confrontation with Tori and Oscar, Jordyn seeks help from the Administration of Children Services (ACS), only to discover she is faced with a maze of departments, regulations, legalities and overworked social workers. Jordyn, however, remains strong and continues to push through the uphill battle, even after she discovers she's pregnant.

With all odds against her adoption of Jeremiah, and her pregnancy at high risk from increasing stress, will Jordyn win this tough battle, or will her world crumble before her?

My review,  Claiming Jeremiah is the kind of book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, you are angry and you cannot put it down!  I felt all of the pain that Jordyn Sims  goes through because the author made her very real to me. A young woman trying to help her nephew is given nothing but aggravation from the Administration of Children Services whose job it is to help and protect our children.  I am very thankful that the author has written about a subject that people like to talk about but, no one seems to care. Maybe this book will help some understand that we need better for all children. I give this book a 5/5.  It was a beautiful story and I recommend it highly.
