This is the story of Daniel—our adopted son from China. He traveled across the world to experience the love of a family, and ultimately touched thousands of lives when his mission on earth ended earlier than we’d planned, and he left us for Heaven. This is not just the story of a child who died, but rather a tribute to a little boy who really, honestly lived. Yes, it’s true that, ultimately, we lost our son. But we know how blessed we were to have met him, loved him, and to have been given the gift of time with his sweet soul. We know that God is good, and though our pain and suffering are sure, the reality remains that Daniel is safe in the arms of our Lord. How blessed we are that—even though it was for such a short time—God entrusted us as Daniel’s loving family before He called our son Home to Heaven.

Such a beautiful story. This book was hard for me to put down. Yet, I found myself having to do it several times as I was overcome with emotion. It is the story of an American family who decides to adopt children from China. They first adopt a little girl. Then their hearts, which are mighty big, open up to take in another beautiful child. This child has some heart issues. This story takes you through the journey of a beautiful American family to and from China, and into the battle for the life of a beautiful and precious child. It is a story of great compassion and love and great joy and sadness. If you choose to read this book, you will come away profoundly and deeply touched, and in such a beautiful way. I highly recommend it.
