Bottke is no flash-in-the-pan author or an expert on a particular topic who has managed to write an acceptable manuscript; she is an extraordinary writer with exceptional talent who is willing to bare her heart to her readers. This is a rare gift and one she freely gives throughout this gripping book. From Bottke’s soul-rending opening account of her New Year’s Day post-SWAT team encounter to her final words of encouragement to parents in like situations, Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children keeps readers hungrily devouring its contents, even as hope builds in their hearts.
“We do not parent as those who have no hope,” Bottke says. “We have a God who watches over our children—if we’ll just get out of His way and let Him do the restoring.”
