The Lucky Few by Heather Avis

Imagine struggling with infertility for years, watching friends and family grow their families, while your own belly is empty. Motherhood was the one thing Heather Avis really wanted in life. Finally, when the doctors confirmed what she'd been dreading, Heather and her husband, Josh took the leap and decided on adoption!

They had so many hopes and dreams for their future child, and of course wanted him or her to be healthy. So when they got the phone call that there was a child with down syndrome in need of a home, they were hesitant to say yes. It was then that Josh and Heather brought it to God, and asked Him what His will was. What if the harder road is the one that will lead to God's blessing? What if God wants us to do the hard things so we can grow closer to Him?

I cannot say enough amazing things about this book! It really is a life changer, especially if God has given you a desire to adopt. Although none of my kids have down syndrome or any other severe developmental delays, I found that I could relate to Heather on many different levels! I know the agony of sitting in waiting rooms and not so patiently waiting for doctor's calls for a diagnosis for my child.

I would definitely recommend this book to all mommas! I think Heather and I could be good friends!

I received this book for free from Booklook Bloggers in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.
