About the Book

Some thought they were crazy! Vince had dreamed of being a 'girl dad' from the time he was an elementary physical education teacher up to when he married Holly who had always dreamed of adopting a child. Together, they were an unstoppable force in pursuit of their daughter somewhere out there in the world! Pineapple Promise tells the story of how Holly and Vince, despite seemingly impossible obstacles forced their way through bureaucracy, emotional overwhelm, and financial strain to make the dream of adopting their daughter from Thailand a reality. We promise you, this is not your average adoption tale. With wit and candor like only Holly can provide, she lets you inside her mind to experience every happy moment and every deep thought along her journey. Following the Pineapple Promise is an incredibly special story full of courage and love -- don't miss out!

Book Synopsis

Love can oftentimes be the biggest motivator, and Holly and Vince's amazing story featured in Pineapple Promise is no exception. Have you ever wondered what would prompt someone to take on such a huge commitment as adopting a child? With these two, it was love all the way. Despite having busy jobs, two children of their own, and living in an expensive region of the USA, they wanted to grow their family even more by adopting a daughter from Thailand - and seeing it through to success!

If you're looking for something witty yet meaningful, then look no further than Pineapple Promise. Written by Holly herself, this memoir takes you through her journey towards becoming adoptive parents - without her or Vince perceiving themselves as 'saving' anyone. Sweet, sometimes funny, and oh-so inspiring! Get a copy of Pineapple Promise today and enjoy an amazing story driven by nothing but love.
