Today's review of Painful Waiting comes from Stacey Doll, our dear friend that God allowed us to meet and serve with at El Camino Academy in Bogota on our second trip to Colombia. So many people said we looked like sisters, so we named ourselves the pink sisters. :) She gave the book five stars.
Rachelle Alspaugh has come out with her second book about trying to adopt internationally. I met this wonderful family on my trip to Colombia, and their story has stuck with me. So excited for you all to experience this book, a combination of heart-felt poetry and inspiring prose. Through the trials the Alspaughs faced, their faith was challenged and strengthened. Yours will be too as you see how God guided them to unexpected places and allowed them to adopt, but not exactly the way they imagined. God is so faithful and knows how to time everything perfectly. Rachelle's book is proof!
Thank you so much to my pink sister, Stacey, for sharing your thoughts on my second book. So thankful for our continued friendship today.
- I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother. Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing. Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.
