Today's review of Painful Waiting comes from Kristine, the one who dared to open her home to two precious Colombian children to host them for the summer in hopes of finding them their forever family. I am forever grateful. She gave the book five stars.
Painful Waiting is a moving tribute to adoptive families and the challenges they face throughout the process. Rachelle's trust in God gave her the strength to continue on an amazing journey that seemed to keep slamming doors every step of the of the way. When many people would have given up, the Alspaugh's persevered. Their unwavering faith made them the amazing family they are today.
Thank you, Kristine, for your heartfelt words about the book and our family. But most of all, thank you for loving Juan David and his sister first so that I could have the chance to love them, too.
- 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.
