How many complete strangers can you name that you would trust to raise your child? It’s wearisome to even think of this happening. A complete stranger? Thankfully, the majority of us may never have to even consider such a heart-wrenching scenario. But it does happen.
God Gave Me You by Tricia Seaman tells the true story of how two incredible mothers met, the immediate bond they formed, and the ups and downs of joining families as one’s earthly life ebbed away. The miracle of these two families coming together demonstrates that family isn’t always blood–sometimes it’s made up of the people God gives you if you have a willing heart.
Without a doubt, you will need a box of tissues, or two, as you read this miraculous story. It will propel you right into the room with Tricia, the oncology nurse, and Trish, the single mother of an eight-year old boy. It is hard to imagine how rare this important series of events really could be a possibility. Yet, as a single mother, what else could Trish do but engage another compassionate soul?
It has always fascinated me how a rainbow forms. In order to see this breathtaking sight, you need two ingredients: sunlight and raindrops. There must first be dark clouds followed by a downpour, and then when the sun peeks through, those warm golden rays penetrate the raindrops and create an awesome arc of colors that stretches across the sky. In other words, something beautiful appears because of a storm.
You can find this beautiful, unforgettable story in the Solid Rock Library. Visit us on Sunday mornings from 8:30-10:30.
