Earlier this year, Eduflack had noted that he had completed a new book on fatherhood, and the book would be coming out soon. After initially self-publishing it through Amazon, I’m pleased to announce that Red Wheel Publishing is releasing the book, and is currently planning to do so in August.
Eduflack fans be warned, this is not my typical policy rants or communications critiques. Instead, this is a very personal and emotional story. It talks through all of the triumphs and challenges my wife and I went through in adopting our children from Guatemala, particularly as we raced against the clock that was shutting off the international adoption process for good. It then transitions into a relatively raw story on my own struggles to figure out what fatherhood truly meant and the stumbles and frustrations I required before I truly became a real husband and a real dad to my family.
The book is Dadprovement: A Journey from Careerist to Adoptive Father to Real Husband and Dad. If any Eduflack readers are interested in reading the book, and then blogging about it, please let me know and I can shoot a copy over to you. It is a quick read, and I hope you will learn a little something about what makes dear ol’ Eduflack tick.
As the publisher notes in the initial promotion, the book provides “Inspiration for any parent wrestling with society’s expectations and acknowledging (and cherishing) what really matters…”
The best part is I am now sharing a publishing imprint with the likes of the Dali Lama and the guy who wrote Chicken Soup for the Soul. I feel like a real boy!
In the coming months, I’ll be ramping up a Dadprovement blog, which will focus on all things fatherhood and the joys and struggles of being a dad. I hope you will add it to your reading list. Check it out!
