Publishers Description Nancy was Canada's first foreign adoptee. She shares her fascinating story of how God orchestrated her adoption from Hong Kong, blessed her with wonderful parents, a loving husband, and in His faithfulness and healing presence, brought them through every struggle, especially the loss of their first daughter, Rebecca Joy. Despite the grief, Nancy shares how God turned their pain into joy and sorrow into victory. From what may have seemed like a tragedy to most, Nancy and her husband, Paul, now see how God used this great trial to prepare their hearts for the adoption of Joylin (5), their first precious daughter and their second, Saralin (1). Take a journey with Nancy, as she testifies of the abiding presence of our heavenly Father's heart for adoption. Nancy (Lai Kwan Chiu) was born in Hong Kong. At 3 years of age, she was adopted by Chinese parents and became Canada's first foreign adoptee. She lived with her parents and adopted brother, Gerry, in Montreal until she was 13, after which her family moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and eventually pursued a career in computer programming. Nancy, her husband, Paul, and adopted Chinese daughters, Joylin (5) and Sarlin (1) now live in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she works as a computer programmer/systems analyst. She enjoys serving as head deacon at her local church and co-teaching an adult Sunday School class with Paul. Nancy's greatest passion, however, is being a mother to Joylin and Saralin, her pride and joy.

Healing for the Adoptive Soul Dec 13, 2008
Nancy has voiced what many other adoptive children were not able to express. I found comfort and healing that she and I shared some of the same feelings as we were growing up. I love how our Heavenly Father uses the body to minister to each other. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about adopting a child. It will help you minister to your child as they grow up. As parents you will not feel that you have failed your child as my parents did.
Helpful and Inspiring Dec 4, 2008
We recently adopted a daughter from China. So, I read whatever I can on the topic. This book was so inspiring. The author's ability to make you feel as if you were present during her journey captivated me. What was so fascinating was to hear about adoption from the perspective of the one who was adopted. Her story inspired as it confirmed that each child has a divine purpose. As I read, I had the sense that God superintended her story. It infused me with hope that our daughter was protected on her journey also. I came away with a certainty that she was prepared for our home in the same way. I can't suggest highly enough that others read this. WOW!
