Book Review: REGGIE: You Can't Change Your Past, but You Can Change Your Future

By: Reggie Dabbs w/ John Driver

I choose this book to review because I was interested to see how being adopted impacted his life. We have adopted our son and its rather interesting to see how adoptees deal with this knowledge. I didn't care for the fact that it took him so long to find out he was adopted. I'm sure back then though many people didn't want to approach the subject and its wasn't as open back then as it is today but adoption is a daily topic in our home and our son will always know that its a positive word in our world. I also don't care for how he found out how he came into the world and that he thought that was the reason he was here. He came into this world in a different means to be with the family that rasied him, but thats just my way of thinking.

He does tell an amazing story overall though he though he uses a lot of fluff to fill in some biblical stories. Its a great story for people to see that they can break free of the past and become something even greater. That the past doesn't have to hold us in place or drag us backwards. Its a great story and one I'm glad to have read.
