Deborah Ann Norsworthy, author of Chasing a Dream Where the Sunflowers Grow, shares an inspirational story of how God led them to adopt a child with Down syndrome—an orphan from the Ukraine.
What an amazing story!
How many of us feel “unqualified” to do this kind of thing? Debbie teaches us that’s not what God is looking for. He’s looking for those who are willing!
From the Amazon.com book description:
After Jim and Deborah Norsworthy had their ninth child, God led them to adopt Lera, who has Down syndrome like their youngest child, Hannah. Hannah had some complications at birth requiring six surgeries to save her life, and Lera was an orphan in Ukraine who the Norsworthys believed needed to be in their family, not in an institution. Chasing a Dream where the Sunflowers Grow is about survival and the rescue to save both girls and the way God speaks to us and gives us the desires of our hearts. With God, all things are possible!
