I loved this book. I loved the way this couple prayed and talked to God. They prayed for specific things, and when they did not receive them they didn't stop praying or quit, instead they prayed for something a little bit different - hoping that God just wanted something a little different than what they wanted.
The first really memorable thing that was shared after they adopted four children they had really worked hard to adopt was, "Why would God answer our prayer?" Answer, "Because we're His children." If God is the father of your life, you can have the same hope that He will tend to your prayers.
Both Annie Laurie and Brian have what I would call soft-spoken voices. I listened to their story mostly at night, but it was not awkward because their voices are continually hopeful and soothing. Their narration made it even easier to imagine them adopting 19 children and taking care of them with joy.
Yes, but I don't want to spoil any part of the book for any future listener.
Annie Laurie and Brian believe that God sometimes speaks to people directly. I know not every Christian believes this, but I hope they will still listen to the book because this couple and their family loved God and the people they came into contact with, with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength, and we all need more examples of that.
