A novel of foster care and adoption
“What if the machines are wrong?” I pleaded. Am I putting more faith in doctors than in God? I thought.
“No, Dyanna Jo. There’s no heartbeat,” Dr. Swanson replied gently.
Expectant mother, Dyanna Jo Baskin, her husband Leif, and her step-daughter Ralley, are devastated when Dyanna Jo miscarries after so many years of trying to get pregnant. When a fertility specialist told her she’d never carry a baby to term, the miscarriage becomes a catalyst for their journey to becoming a foster family.
A story told from each character’s point of view, the family embarks on an emotional roller coaster within the foster care system and are blessed with two exceptional children. Baby Jane Doe is born drug-exposed and left at the hospital, and Baby John Doe is an abortion survivor.
Through the devastating loss and brokenness, Dyanna Jo, Leif, and Ralley transform as a family in a place and time of God’s choosing into a foster home and a place of refuge.
