A true story of the challenges endured by two gay men who had the desire to adopt a child.
When Andrew and DJ decided to adopt and bring a child into their lives, little did they know what they were about to endure; yet never did the thought cross their minds to give up. The horrific, pitilessly, and beyond comprehensible hoops one woman would make them jump through demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that little Amelia was going to be much better off in the loving home that Drew and DJ could provide her. Just when you think, how can two people survive such a nightmare and the journey is just about over when little Amelia is born and will be safely in the arms of her loving dads, Sandi decides to pull one more shenanigan that could change their lives forever.
More than 10 million adults have been adopted or fostered in their childhood. Along with spiraling increases in adoptions comes a growing need to disclose the significant flaws in adoption laws that open the doors to fraud, manipulation, and abuse of the system. ANYTHING FOR AMELIA is the first book to explore this dark side of the adoption process through the true story of one couple's journey through hell. Called "the most difficult adoption in U.S. history" by adoption experts, the book appeals to nearly all families (traditional and non-traditional) interested in adoption, foster parenting, or surrogacy.
An amazing book filled with tips, advice, and eye-opening first-hand accounts, this is one feel-good story that serves an important purpose and fills a critical gap in adoption literature. - D. J. Herda

Thank you for purchasing my memoir, Anything for Amelia. During my 206 day adoption journey, I experienced what many called 'the most difficult adoption in U.S. history.' As a result, I was inspired to write this book with the intent on helping other adoptive families or those considering adoption. I hope that others can learn from my mistakes so that their adoption can be as smooth as possible. The last section of the book provides tips that will help your adoption process. Thank you again for reading my book. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the foster care system.About the Author:
Andrew Branham is a business executive who lives in Jackson, MI. He was born in the culturally rich and diverse town of Lorain, Ohio. He is married to his long-time partner and they have one daughter. Andrew is an avid writer and has contributed articles and Opeds for multiple major newspapers throughout the country. He also writes business articles for many different publications and websites.
Anything for Amelia is his first book and he was inspired to write it due to his extremely difficult adoption that many experts claimed was 'the most difficult adoption in U.S. history'. Andrew found that writing in a journal each day during the adoption helped him to relieve the extreme levels of stress that he was facing. The journal proved to be the key to him writing the memoir. Andrew hopes that his book will help other adoptive families to avoid some of the mistakes that he made. In addition, he is donating a portion of any profits to the foster care system. In his spare time, Andrew enjoys the outdoors, travel, writing, reading, and spending time with his family. He is currently working on his first fiction novel that will be released in late 2015 or early 2016. Andrew is a gay rights and human rights advocate. He is also a huge supporter of adoption, gay adoption, open adoption and foster care. He financially supports an orphanage overseas in Thailand.
