J.D. Vermaas brings the beautifully messy world of adoption, missions, and real-world challenges to life. It is beautifully written--even more is the amazing legacy she has created by remaining faithful in her pursuit to help just one at a time, (and sometimes a few more). From the perspective of one who has experienced and worked with the "unadoptable," I fully resonate with the journey, pain, hope, and restoration that comes from the unconditional love of those who come alongside. Truly, a wonderful accomplishment and a beautiful story!
This delightful book is must reading for successful business people who wonder if they are "giving enough back" to the world. It contains a ton of inspiration (and oodles of love). I commend it and hope other wealthy men and women follow in the admirable footsteps of its author J.D. Vermaas and her husband.
Get Money Do Good is an inspiring read about an amazing family, alternating between the voices of four of its family members. There is honesty, heartache, and above all--love.

It is a rare and wonderful experience to read a book that discloses the highly personal, highly candid inner family life of relentless change-makers seeking persistently to find their life’s purpose.

Powerful.
Through moments of blood, sweat, and tears, Dr. J.D. Vermaas reveals the broken, global issue of lost and orphaned children. Brilliantly written memoirs through the eyes of one powerful woman on a mission to change the world--one messy story at a time.
