Very nice combination of stories. All miracles! Tearjerker for sure! An easy read because you want to read about the next incredible miracle!

This book was so encouraging. Many adoption books only focus on the trials and potential problems, but this tells of the blessings of adoption.

Classic Kingsbury writing enhances these beautiful stories of adoption miracles in the lives of God's people. Be prepared with kleenex!

The stories in this book are awe-inspiring, and a true testament to God's providence. I enjoyed them all, and even though the writing bordered on cheesy, the book accomplished the authors intent, which was to encourage and inspire families interested in the possibility of adoption.

I enjoyed the stories but they seemed kind of over the top. I suppose that is the whole point of the book, that adoptions are miraculous. I would never discourage anyone against reading the book, but I would have liked reading a book about more "normal" people.

I have a lot of friends who have adopted recently, and this was recommended to me. They were great short stories (some tearjerkers)but really didn't help me connect with them as I had hoped. It's more like the Chicken Soup for the Soul books.

"Twelve true stories illustrating the presence of God in adoption." This little book is an uplifting reminder that it is God who puts families together, sometimes in very unexpected ways that can only be described as a miracle.

Cute, quick read.
"None of our kids really belong to us. If God puts a child in our lives, in our homes, then that child is our own for as long as God desires. They're all on loan, when you think about it."

This is written by a fiction author that I very much enjoy. Karen Kingsbury is also an adoptive mother who has collected these stories that show how our miraculous adoptions bring glory to God!

Amazing stories that are almost hard to believe. Almost. This book was passed along by some good friends of ours. A couple who we look up to as successful adoptive parents.

Great book! It is encouraging to those looking into adoption. You can see God's hand in them. You might need a kleenex box.

Recommends it for: those considering adoption
Given that our little miracle, Nicholas was nothing short of a miracle I could so relate to the miracles in this book.
