A friend recommended this book to me, and I am glad that she did. I do not have a child with Down's Syndrome, not have I adopted a child. Although I have given birth to a child, I also have experienced, and/or witnessed, infertility struggles, adoption procedures, and the blessings that they eventually bring. As I get older, I am in constant search for testimonies and experiences that will make me a more empathetic family member, friend, and educator. Heather Avis' raw honesty in her words allowed me to feel her emotions. I felt her pain, disappointment, anxiety, joy, contentment, and gratitude. She also reminded me that God's plan for our lives is always better than our own.

Book description:​

When life looks radically different than the plan we have for ourselves, it’s the lucky few that recognize God’s plan is best. That’s what adoptive mom Heather Avis learned, and that’s the invitation of this book.

As the mother of three adopted children – two with Down syndrome – Heather Avis has learned that it’s truly the lucky few who get to live a life like hers, who actually recognize that God’s plans are best, even when they seem so radically different from the plans we have for ourselves.

When Heather started her journey into parenthood she never thought it would look like this, never planned to have three adopted children, and certainly never imagined that two of them would have Down syndrome. But like most things God does, once she stepped into the craziness and confusion that comes with the unknown and the unplanned, she realized that they were indeed among the lucky few.
