Finding Fulfillment, Review of Children of Dreams by Katherine Harms



Because so many have wanted to read my book, I decided to extend the offer for a free Kindle ebook for a few more days. Here is a review that Katherine Harms posted last week that I loved. Yes, some reviews impact authors more than others--when they hit that nerve within us that speaks to the heart of what we have written.

This review is from: Children of Dreams (Paperback)

I think everyone I know has asked at some time, "Why am I here?" Lorilyn Roberts asks that question, too, and she answers it in "Children of Dreams." Acting on her faith that God never abandons someone who is following his call, Lorilyn wades through, works around, or climbs over obstacles spread over half a world. Having traveled in a few third-world countries myself, I recognized some of the bureaucratic nightmares that stalked her effort to adopt two little girls and fulfill her dream and calling to be a mother. 

Many people would have been stopped in their tracks by the initial processes and endless forms required for an international adoption. Many, many people would have wilted in Nepal as soon as they discovered they should have brought a carton of toilet paper with them. Not many single women would have braved what passes for a mountain highway in Nepal on a tiny scooter navigating past barricades and stone-throwing rebels for love of a baby. Many people would have given up on the whole thing as promise after promise was broken in Viet Nam before Lorilyn finally held her new baby in her arms.

A chronicle of faith in action, Lorilyn's path was as convoluted and full of tears as the path of the Israelites to the promised land. She, too, discovered that God has his own way of shining light into dark days and ultimately giving his children more than they even hope for. This book is worth much more than the time you will spend reading it. Don't miss "Children of Dreams."
