Finding God’s Best in the Most Unlikely Places

I am voluntarily reviewing a copy of The Lucky Few through Zondervan and Netgalley in exchange for my honest review:
Heather Avis always knew she would be a Mom from the time she was a child. When her sister has a baby she cannot help but wonder when it will be her turn. She talks about her season of infertility and the expense of private adoptions, by 2008 she is in Romania, when the adoption agency contacts them via email letting them know that babies with Down Syndrome, which are harder to place were placed with the agency.
Once back home Heather contacts the agency about adopting a baby with Down Syndrome after much prayer they decide to adopt a medically fragile baby named Arpi, aware that she may only live to be five or eight, on October 28, 2008, Macyn (The name they gave her) came to live with them.
When Macyn was just over two, her parents got the news they were waiting for, praying for, the Pulmonary Hypertension the doctors thought would drastically shorten her lifespan was gone, they could take the oxygen off.
When Macyn was two, the family started the adoption process for Avis, this time they decide to adopt through the County, Avis they rename Truly Star, and in 2013 they get notified about a family who is looking for adopted parents for their Son who had Down Syndrome. Forty eight after he is born they get to bring their son home like Macyn had, their Son August needed open heart surgery
I give The Lucky Few five out of five stars.
