One of four stories. Also included:

"A Son for Always" by Amy Clipston: Carolyn and her husband, Joshua, are thrilled to be pregnant with their first child. A teenager when she had her son, Benjamin, Carolyn still feels obligated to work to secure Ben's future even though Josh adopted him. She struggles to realize that Josh will love and protect both of their children equally.

"A Heart Full of Love" by Kathleen Fuller: Ellie's mother loves to meddle in her personal life--especially now that Ellie's pregnant. Since Ellie is blind, her mother worries she won't be able to handle the baby. When Ellie gives birth to twins, her mother insists on moving in. Just as everyone reaches the breaking point, a miracle draws them closer to each other and to God.

"An Unexpected Blessing" by Vannetta Chapman: At 42 Etta thought her time of having children was over, but she's pregnant again. She goes into labor during a blizzard, and complications with the delivery raise fear. Etta struggles to accept God's will for the baby and her son, David, who moved away two years earlier in search of what he would do with his life

In His Father's Arms, by Beth Wiseman

A story of love and acceptance of their first born child having Down Syndrome. The need to know why God and understand his plan for them. This story brought me to tears. Bravo!

A young Amish couple have a baby born with Downs syndrome. This book deals with how they are handling having a child with special needs. Also how they are dealing with each other. It is a very emotional read. But a very worthwhile one.

How well did this book represent Down syndrome?
