Until We All Come Home Book Giveaway!

As I wrote in my previous post, I was so honored to be a part of the Launch Team for author Kim de Blecourt's new book entitled "Until We All Come Home". I was especially excited because this book is about something that is very close to my heart: adoption.



 This book is described as "A Harrowing Journey, A Mother's Courage, A Race to Freedom" and let me tell you, this description is 100% accurate! I couldn't put this book down and read it...start to finish...in a 24 hour period. It's riveting and intense, frustrating and emotional and ultimately, it's so encouraging and victorious!



 I'm amazed at Kim de Blecourt's tenacity and her crazy-strong faith that she would not give up what God has promised her! What blessed me even more so is her honesty in how this journey changed her. I, too, have been on a harrowing journey and while I've stood firm in my faith in God, I've been changed as well. Changes that I don't like. I read a lot of books and no one ever talks much about how the very difficult times can change you in ways you don't want...but de Blecourt poignantly shares her heart. And in her doing so, has brought a special peace to my heart and mind and proclaims, "Michelle! You aren't alone!" For me, because of the author's honesty, a fresh healing has begun within me.



Faith Words offers this description of the book: “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”
