I was given this book some years ago when I was in the hospital because of an injured knee. I recall lying there feeling sorry myself and being a little miserable to my wife because of being on my back. Did this story ever snap me out of that mood. It is a story I have never forgotten and have mentioned it on many occasions to my friends. Even to this day when things aren't going the best, I believe God makes me think of the family in this story and it still makes me thank God for how He has taken care of me.

I had read this book many years ago and in 1975 my sister had contacted the DeBolts and ultimately was able to adopt my niece. My niece is 32 now and just this past weekend got married!

The book was a wonderful book of courage and shows how deeply we can love others. What an inspiration!

Format: Hardcover
This is the story of the Debolt family, which adopted a large number of handicapped or otherwise challenged children, and enabled the kids to achieve beyond most people's expectations through tough love, diligence, and hard work.

I remember reading this book in high school and 30 years later, I still remembered this amazing story. It moved me so much that I planned that I would adopt someday. This family taught their children how to be independent in a world that would assume they would always be dependent and THAT is inspirational. The DeBolts adopted many children with a variety of disabilities, gave them love, discipline and encouraged them to step up and take control of their own destinies. Great book-Magnificent people.
