A love story that is every Christian’s story. Bringing Lucy Home shares the compelling drama of one family’s relentless pursuit to bring hope into the life of an orphaned baby girl.

However, Jennifer Phillips’ journey unexpectedly detoured into heartache, causing indefinite separation from her husband and three biological children.

Bringing Lucy Home paints a beautiful picture of God’s love for His children, best expressed in His adoption of us while we were undeserving at best and resistant at worst. In addition to encouraging anyone in the midst of or considering adoption, this story could be used as an evangelism tool to help unbelievers understand God’s passionate and relentless pursuit of His peopleAmazon Review
