Children of Dreams by Lorilyn Roberts

Book Description:
"Children of Dreams" is borne out of Lorilyn Roberts' shattered dreams. The inspiring story of turning stolen dreams into life-changing hope not only for her but two destitute children will bring tears to the reader as he identifies with her feelings of insecurity and fear. The timeless theme of God's faithfulness-the stuff out of which God brings redemption-will leave the reader riveted to the pages of this book. "Children of Dreams" is more than an adoption story set in the remotest regions of the planet. Facing insurmountable odds-communist blockades, life-threatening illness, betrayal and deceit-Lorilyn Roberts' courage and determination never to give up will touch the reader. Despair transformed into heavenly joy and evil overcome by God's redemptive love will inspire even the most skeptical to believe in miracles. "Children of Dreams" resonates with Biblical truth at a deep level and in a sense is everyone's story. Timeless in nature, "Children of Dreams" is sure to be a favorite adoption story for years to come. Ms. Roberts is intimately familiar with adoption, having also been adopted as a child, and is able to present the spirit of adoption, as never before captured, in this tender story. Comparing the adoption of her daughters to her adoption by the heavenly Father throughout the story flows naturally.
My Thoughts:
I was amazed at Lorilyn's persistence and strentgh of will. This book details a woman who TRULY wants to become a mother...not once, but twice....and the struggles she went through in order to make her dreams come true. After a divorce which she thought could be the end of her dreams, Lorilyn struggles back from Satan's clutches and fights for her chance to become a mother to a beautiful little girl from Korea. She jumps through many hoops to make her dream come true. Willing to work and provide the best possible life for this bundle of joy, Lorilyn soon realises she wants another little girl and starts her new search for another daughter of her heart. She showed great tenacity in aquiring her second dream in spite of years of frustration and trial. Lorilyn sets a wonderful example of what can happen to our dreams when we focus on God and let Him lead us in HIS timing for our lives. She is very inspiring! I give this book a 4/5
