Today's review of Painful Waiting comes from my dear friend in Colombia, Claire Marquez, again. She gave the book five stars, and I think she was one of the very first ones to finish reading it.
This book is an amazing book... I am so so happy for my good friend Rachelle and her family. This book speaks dear to my heart because I got to be part of the process. Our God is so so good and it talks about the wonderful journey that they took trusting and putting all their faith in God. This book brings all kinds of emotions. For me being a Colombian adopted into a North American family this book hits home in so many ways. This book has lots of amazing life lessons that one can learn from and especially how God is all ways there and never leaves you in the midst of the hardest times.
I love this review for so many reasons, First, because as a missionary herself, she gets the whole faith aspect of the book series. And in addition to that, she is a Colombian adoptee, so I got to see how someone with that background might be affected by our story.
Thank you again, Claire. I can't wait for your own book to come out someday!
