Item description for Emma's Story: A Turkish Orphan Finds Hope, a Family, and a Future (based on true events) by Bob Sjogren & Stephani Reynolds...
Overview Norita Erickson is a missionary who is looking for a miracle. Graham and Becky are a middleaged couple who are called to minister where they have zero experience and zero resources. Bahar Yilmaz is a little girl who is born into a world of drugs and violence, but is destined for something great. And they all live hundreds, if not thousands of miles away from each other. Told through the perspectives of both humans and angels, Emma's Story opens up the world of the "cursed" children children who are physically or mentally handicapped and trapped in a world that believes they are lost causes. However, God's love and sovereignty gives them a chance to live like they never have before, and the phrase, what you did for the least of these becomes the heart of the lives Graham, Becky, Norita, and Bahar.
Publishers Description Tara is a missionary in Turkey who is looking for a miracle in her persistent requests to volunteer at an orphanage. Graham and Becky are a middle-aged, American couple who are called to minister alongside Tara where they have no experience and no resources. Emma is a little girl who is born into a drug-ridden and violent family and through a series of events, finds herself in the very same orphanage. Told through the perspectives of both humans and angels, Emma's Story opens up the world of the "cursed" children: children who are physically or mentally handicapped and trapped in a culture that believes they are lost causes. However, God's love and sovereignty gives them a chance to live like they never have before and the phrase, "what you did for the least of these" becomes much more than Tara, Graham and Becky could have ever thought or imagined.
