Only by experiencing this painful journey straight into the heart of the orphan is she able to see the breathtaking beauty of Gods handiwork in the valley.From the Mountain...to the Valley... and Back! is a heartfelt story of faithfulness to Gods plan during difficult and uncertain times. The events of this familys adoption journey show how God can ultimately use you to bless the lives of others and be blessed as well, even when each step along the way is unclear. I recommend this inspirational book to adoptive families and to anyone who has faced difficulties when responding to Gods calling.Andrew Steele - Adoption & Foster Care Ministry Lead, Lake Pointe ChurchWithin the pages of Rachelles story, one hears her despair, and brokenness--a mothers heart, crying out to God to make sense of all that was happening. It is in this time of brokenness that God revealed another plan--His plan. Hemingway said, Life breaks us all, and afterwards, some are strong at the broken places. You will be blessed by this story which offers the best of what life has to teach us by giving the broken pieces to a God who sees the bigger picture of our lives. Simone Monroe, Womens Minister, Lake Pointe ChurchI was captivated by this real life story of a familys faith that perseveres. Its a must read for those who desire to fully embrace an orphans love. This is an amazing story thats still being written. There will be generational influence because a family chose to love the fatherless.Rod Vestal, Campus Pastor/Pastor of Community Campus Missions, Lake Pointe Church Firewheel, previously serving with World Orphans
