"This story reminds that the road of adoption, as with just about anything worth doing, is rarely an easy one. What we also see, though, is that the joy and purpose found in opening heart and home to a child that'd otherwise grow up without a family most always make the necessary sacrifices far more than worth it..."--Jedd Medefind, President, Christian Alliance for Orphans and former Special Assistant to the President (George W. Bush) and Director of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives
"I can describe this book in one word: captivating. It details the heart-wrenching excitement of running and hiding from one of the scariest government agencies in the world, and it is absolutely magnetic. I don't know how this family survived such a horrendous ordeal other than through God's intervention and favor. This is a must-read that you will be talking about for years to come, and a reference manual on the positive results that come from having a tenacious, never-quit attitude." "Gary VanDyke, President, Food for Orphans""
