About Sherrie

For well over two decades, Sherrie Eldridge has offered her unique voice within the adoption community, as an established author and international speaker. An adoptee herself, Eldridge has the ability to see life through the eyes of an adopted child. In her eight published titles, she has shared her passion for validating adoptees’ life experiences and her desire to help adoptive parents better understand and meet their adopted children’s emotional needs.

 Update! Sherrie is working on another book. She thought she’d written every book she wanted, but then something significant happened within her that she thought was worthy to be shared with adoptive and foster moms and fellow adoptees.

    Sherrie, your book, “20 Things Adopted Kids Wish Their Parents Knew About Adoption” should be required reading for adoptive parents. My heart breaks at all the things we did “wrong” (but no false guilt here – we move forward with what we know now with great expectations). Praying that after nine years of having these children in our home (now teens), the walls will begin to come down and trust and healing will begin to grow. Planning to read the other books, but wanted to ask about the workbook – it mentions the example collage in the first chapter, but I don’t see it in the workbook?…. Thank you again for all you do!!! Blessings! http://www.un-perfect.net

    Sherrie, your book was my lifeline! I started an orphanage in Bolivia and ended up adopting 11 of the several hundred children that I cared for. Your book helped me to understand what I was dealing with and give my kids the best care and understanding I could!

  3. As a Christian, I value and respect the Holy Bible. As an adoptive parent, I consider, “Twenty Things Every Adopted Kid Wished Their Adoptive Parents Knew”, the Bible of Adoption! If every court and social service entity provided this book to each new adoptive (prospective) parent, we would ALL sleep more nights, spend far less on therapy, and experience brighter days sooner, rather than later. It’s been said there is no “manual” on how to raise a child. However, after reading just a few chapters in “Twenty Things…”, I am convinced this book is indeed “The Manual” for successfully parenting an adopted child. Today, WE are incredibly thankful that you made the CHOICE to share your life with the world in such an open, candid way. I see my daughter in you. If you can make it…so will she…so will WE! Thank you for being YOU. My heartfelt gratitude. -Angela

  4. Your writings always strike a profound chord in me. I’m so thankful that I’ve found you as an author and person on Facebook. You’ve spoken life into my life and helped me along as a supporter for my son. Keep writing!
