Anne Lilley Franklin

A Baby’s Journey Home

 Anne is a mother who adopted two children through international adoptions. After her experiences, preparations, anticipation, successful adoptions, and two wonderful children, Anne took all of her memories and created this lovingly crafted children’s book.  She is a pastel  portrait artist who lives in North Carolina with her family; this is Anne’s first book. She wrote the book so that her children would know that it was God’s plan for them to be where they are. Even though there are unknowns and concerns along the way with all adoptions, God knows the reason for every step of the journey.
