Many of us have gone through tragedies and heartbreak in which we thought we would never survive. We cling to our hope that we will be spared the despair of losing a loved one only to face the grief that hurts us to our soul. After I read this book, I very gently laid it down and sobbed. The book was very emotional as well as filled with faith so strong I could chills running up and down my arms.
Sarah Rodriguez is happily married to Joel. They are deeply in love and long for a child. Many times they have been hopeful that Sarah was pregnant only to be disappointed over and over again. As they go through steps to get pregnant a devastating diagnosis for Joel takes them on a ride that can only be described as devastation. Sarah shared her heart in this book and her emotions and feelings are raw . I loved her openness to share her story that will touch many lives. As it gets closer to the birth of their child, Joel starts to have setbacks with his illness. I admired his fight and positive attitude. He never once complained and took each test, treatment and pain with faith and trust in God.
Sarah's journey is hard to read at times as the hurt is so painful , but she continued to pray without ceasing and trusted God every step of the way, As one life is mourned, another new life is born. Joel always told her she would have a girl and his words came true. But Sarah was just about to start a downward spiral as her baby girl becomes very ill. I know what it feels like to feel hopeless , but Sarah showed strength that even doctors were amazed at. She never gave up, she believed her child would be healed and God had great plans for her.
As you read this emotional story, find comfort in knowing that God is always in control. Never give up, hold on to your faith and believe in miracles.
"No one ever knows what's in store , but I can now face it with confidence-confidence in who I am, confidence in who walks beside me. I am never alone. I was never alone."
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing. The review is my own opinion and I was not compensated for it.
