Mike and Hayley Jones of Thompson’s Station will be signing copies of their book At Any Cost – Overcoming Every Obstacle to Bring Our Children Home at Barnes & Noble’s in Cool Springs at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 8.
In the book they share a chaotic intercontinental story of their 34-month battle to adopt eight siblings from Sierre Leone and become the “Jones Dozen.”
The couple always wanted several children, but after two difficult births, they decided to adopt.
They were thinking one or two – the number eight was definitely not on their radar – until they found eight siblings in an orphanage in Sierra Leone who desperately needed a home and they needed to stay together.
Their story is one of faith, courage, perseverance and love.
