Until We All Come Home {Giveaway}

And the winner is… Kelli Wommack!!!

 

Have you heard about my friend Kim de Blecourt’s newly released book yet?

“When Kim de Blecourt and her husband decided to adopt a child from Ukraine, they knew that the process might be challenging. Nothing, however, could have prepared de Blecourt for the twisted nightmare she would endure. During her year-long struggle to extricate her newly adopted little boy from that post-Soviet country’s corrupt social service and judicial systems, de Blecourt was insulted, physically assaulted, and arrested. Worse, her months of loneliness, worry, and fear drove her to the brink of spiritual despair. But God had no intention of abandoning de Blecourt or her family. Her amazing story-culminating in a spine-chilling race to freedom-offers dramatic proof that God’s light shines on even in the deepest darkness.”

Kim and I have talked at great lengths about the challenges and blessing of adoption but nothing compares to the harrowing events that took place as she tried to bring her little boy home from the Ukraine. We met at a writer’s conference a couple years ago and have been friends ever since. Kim shared her story at our local Praise and Coffee event to a mesmerized crowd of women. I think the highlight was when Jacob came in at the end of the evening and ran through the crowd to get to his Momma. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
Their story will touch you deeply.
I’m giving away a signed copy to one of you that comments to this post.

  2. Wow!! Sounds like an amazing story!! I love reading stories about adoption, and how God works, even when things look impossible!! It helps to boost my own faith!! 🙂

  3. This book just reading the description tugs at my heart and I really want to read it. God is so amazing in the path he takes us on as part of his journey for us.

  4. Would love to read this – my friend adopted a little boy from Russia and they are in the process of adopting a little girl from Russia now! Praise the Lord!

  5. This blog post brought tears to my eyes as I have been wanting to adopt since I was a teenager. Can't wait to read the book.

  6. The cover of her book is heartwarming…
    I would have loved to be in the audience when
    she spoke!

  7. I heard about her at the Praise and Coffee event, what an amazing story. I would love to get the book!

  8. Oh! I hope I win!! 🙂

  9. Aww how touching and inspiring. So glad she got him 🙂 God always has a way of working things out. My aunt adopted her little girl Kaia from Kambodia in 2001, it was the greatest blessing even though it was trying for her. Thank God for parents that adopt 🙂 I would love to read this book.

  10. I would love to read Kim's book… I have heard so many great things about it! Thanks for highlighting it again, Sue.

  11. I met Kim briefly at the Maranatha Writer's Conference in Sept. Can't wait to read the book. Thank you.

  12. Would love to read book! Loved listening to her tell her story! Powerful to say the least!

  13. I can't wait to read this book! We were in the process of adopting from Russia, but due to issues with Russia had to put things on hold for now.

  14. Only the enemy would make such a beautiful act (adopting a needy child) so painful and difficult. So many adoption stories are similar in that it is a knock-down-drag-out battle to rescue the child.

  15. This sounds like such an incredible story!! I will definitely add this to my must-read list.

    Exciting book!! I have not adopted yet but I feel that it is God's calling for my husband and I….just not yet. I am so interested in others journeys.

    I can't wait to read this book! My husband and I adopted from Russia back in 1999 and I bet I can really relate to some of your experiences. Loving a child is not difficult, but getting them home and raising them is another story. I too wrote a story about our experience in a book titled, "Miracle in The City of Angels: An International Adoption Story" By Elle Conner ( my pen name) and Erin Brown Conroy M.A.
