Your book also stood out to me in store, and I am so glad that I purchased it. It was a truly inspirational story of the power of love and moved me deeply. I am very grateful for wonderful people like you in our world, and think it's awesome that you have given a great start in life to kids who might not have had such a chance, and also opened your own hearts to an abundance of love and experiences you might not have had yourselves otherwise. Thank you for sharing your story and I wish you and both your Australian and Indian families all the very best. I will keep you all in my prayers. Good luck and best wishes, a Perth Mum.

This is such a wonderful and inspirational story, that has completely touched my heart. I could not imagine my two beautiful children being taken from me or having to deal with the complexities of your situation. How can people make donations to your Indian family, who are so desperately in need? I am sure many people will want to help your family, and others like them, when they have read your book...have you set up a charity people can donate to? You have a best seller on your hands, and I am sure many people who read your story will want to feel they can help your famiy in a practical manner.

What a wonderful life-story. I was looking for a book that had substance and meaning and I found it in 'Love our Way". I wish you and your family all the very best. It is lovely to see Sunama's children dressed in the uniforms and attending school. The benefit of education is unmeasurable.

Julia, I have just finished (relunctantly) your wonderful story. What beautiful children you have....I'm sure they will all grow up to be amazing adults. I laughed and cried and found mountains of inspiration in your book. I think I'll leave it by my bed to read as a pick-me-up when parenting seems all too hard. I wish you and your two amazing families all the best and I look forward to keeping up with everyone's progress on this blog. Well Done!
Kind regards
Kathryn

Hi Julia

Congratulations on a wonderful read, I found your family story compelling and inspiring. I think that your family is an asset to the modern world and set an amazing example of humanity and compassion that we can all learn from. It is obvious that you and Barry have done a wonderful job of raising children who will carry these special qualities into future generations. I wish you and your families the very best going forward. Dionne

Have just finished reading - "Love Our Way' - what a very inspirational story. Your wonderful, loving, all consuming love for your children and people in general just shines through every page.

As I cooked cakes etc for my family today, I imagined what I would be doing if I was Sunama. I think we all need to be more frugal and life simple lives so that others can simply live. (yes I know that is a quote from somewhere).

Our love, light, prayers and wishes to your Australian and Indian families.

Your family's story was heartwarming and eye opening to read. Once I opened your book, I could barely put it down. Thank you for sharing your story. My students who were researching into children being sold around the world loved hearing about your family's story as well.
Truly inspirational.

Your book was inspiring, honest and well written...difficult to put down. What a supportive husband and family - not only for you but for each other. I was glad to see the televised update and re-joining of two families. I'm sorry Babu was not able to be there. Your story truly opened my eyes to a new world and a new meaning to real acceptance. Thank you for sharing your story.
