My wife and I want to adopt a child. And this blog is, among many, many other things, our chronicle.
To help us bring home a child, please purchase my novel, The Man in the Box on Amazon. You can also get it for your Kindle here. See below for what people are saying about it. Join the facebook page to get updates.
With this blog, I hope to enlighten you with truths about adoption and a myriad of other topics. I want to entertain you with book and movie recommendations. And I want to stimulate your mind and your heart toward topics on religion and Christianity.
So this blog is dedicated to our son whom we have yet to meet and to all of you who have ventured into the crazy, unstable world of adoption, and to those who are thinking about it. Enjoy the versatile posts, and keep checking in for new surprises!

“This was a heart-stopping suspense adventure like I haven’t read in a long time. The author does a great job of interfusing light humor with the intense action moments–and there are a lot of them. From battling dinosaurs to ghost-demons, I was always anxious for Robbie and wondered how he would make it out of the danger. Now that is building suspense when you’re wondering how a character could ever get out of his predicament even though you know he has to.”

“Andrew Toy has created a unique and interesting story that spans several genres from mystery and adventure to fantasy … Toy’s debut novel will leave readers talking and will make them instant fans of his storytelling abilities. This will surely be a must-read for every adult that once created a world of their own when they were young, just by using their imaginations.”

“Expect dinosaurs and giant creepy-crawlies. And if that kind of thing scares you, then you’re like me, which means you’ll go ahead and read the book anyway, with no one to blame but yourself for all the flinching you’ll do … There was no going to bed until I’d reached the end. The suspense had me on the edge of my seat with worry about how everyone was going to get out of this, heart thumping out of control the whole time, except for that one minute where it almost stopped.”

“I was not disappointed—I finished it in a day. I had a hard time putting it down … There is more universality here. Robbie comes close to being an archetypal figure. He is Everyman, and his box is everyone’s “box.”’

“Simple stories distract us. Good stories stir us. Powerful stories move us. Andrew Toy has written a story that rips the shroud covering the silent beast crouching near all of us, the life of emptiness and despair. He creates a compelling narrative truth of life as it is and as we want it; and he offers a peek at a hope for us all. I urge you: Relax in your favorite chair, pull up a footstool, and read The Man in the Box. Be prepared for the peaks and valleys of adventure, fantasy, real life, and war.”
