"The Mesmerizing Story of True Belief in a Higher Power - 5-Stars! The author manages to put into words the joy, heart ache and outcome...in a smooth flowing way that will mesmerize you to the point that hours and pages are the same. You will not want to put this book down until you find out what happened next. I felt tremendous respect for this family who, despite the adversity, kept their eyes on the Lord and their focus on their goal...until that they had set out to do had come to be their reality. What a great addition to any library." (Brenda Ballad, Readers' Favorite )

"I can describe this book in one word: captivating. It details the heart-wrenching excitement of running and hiding from one of the scariest government agencies in the world, and it is absolutely magnetic. I don't know how this family survived such a horrendous ordeal other than through God's intervention and favor. This is a must-read that you will be talking about for years to come, and a reference manual on the positive results that come from having a tenacious, never-quit attitude." (Gary VanDyke, President, Food for Orphans )

"Kim de Blecourt's story is amazing--and I never use the word amazing. Her courage in the face of persecution and obstacles will inspire you as you turn the pages of her adoption saga, a tale like none other. Until We All Come Home reads like a novel, and will enthrall you with each nail-biting episode until the blockbuster conclusion. The difference is, Kim really lived this story, and her profound devotion for her little boy is a tribute to a mother's love, and to God's care and shelter in the worst circumstances." (Lorilee Craker, journalist and New York Times best-selling author of 11 books, including Through the Storm with Lynne Spears and Money Secrets of the Amish. )

"UNTIL WE ALL COME HOME is a page-turner! This true life story is so captivating the reader is fully emotionally engaged from the beginning to the end. Kim de Blecourt has done an extraordinary job of relating the gripping impact of saying 'Yes' to God's leading in the life of her family. The tenacity, passion, and relentless cry of this mother's heart will make a lasting imprint on your life." (Carol Kent, Speaker and Author of When I Lay My Isaac Down and Between a Rock and a Grace Place )

"From its opening words to its last, UNTIL WE ALL COME HOME, take the readers on a heart-pounding journey that combines the intrigue of a political spy novel with the warmth of a mother's diary. Kim de Blecourt's book is that rare true-to-life tale that combines warmth, perspective, and wisdom with a message for everyone; we are all orphans in search of a relentless love that fulfills the promise to bring us home." (Shelly Beach, award-winning author of The Silent Seduction of Self-Talk )

"Until We All Come Home reads like a spy thriller, but with the reality that a child's life and livelihood is at stake. It's a terribly beautiful story of a family's love for a child, a corrupt bureaucracy, and the painful lessons we learn when we follow God wherever He leads. I loved this page-turning, God-breathed book." (Mary DeMuth, author of Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus )

"Until We All Come Home is one woman's true story which will draw you in from the very first sentence. It is a story of love, intrigue, harrowing fear, and absolute faith in the One who protects and provides in the midst of great darkness. I literally could not put this book down." (Kristine McGuire, author of Escaping the Cauldron: Exposing Occult Influences in Every Day Life )

"Wow! That is probably the word I used the most while reading this wonderful book! From the opening chapter to the last word and everything in between-it is a wild, page-turning ride that pulls the reader in and doesn't let go. Bravo, Kim de Blecourt, bravo!" (Wanda L. Sanchez, Producer, Salem Radio Network, San Francisco )

"Watching God work in the lives of people is always intriguing, and sometimes very unique. UNTIL WE ALL COME HOME is a story of hope when every turn of events appeared to be hopeless. This is an open and honest review of God's faithfulness and one person's struggle in recognizing it." (Dean Parham, Pastor of Immanuel Church of Holland, MI )

"An international adoption, out-of-control oppression, assault, robbery, corruption, manipulation, lawsuits, a national warrant, spiritual attack, more than eleven months in a foreign country-and one woman's courage. Kim de Blecourt's story will grab hold of your heart and won't let go. You might wonder, as I did, what you'd be willing to do for love and whether your trust in God is enough." (Twila Belk, writing, speaker, co-author of Heavenly Company and I Believe in Healing )

Honest. Stunning. Raw. Captivating. Challenging. Full of hope. These words describe Kim de Blecourt's book "Until We All Come Home." Kim shares the heart-wrenching story her family experienced in adopting a child from the former Soviet Union province, Ukraine. Jahn and Kim could be a neighbor, best friend or co-worker of any reader. Their journey began as a common experience of those seeking adoption. But one turn after another, one decision after another, one day after another brought them to places they never imagined from the comfort of their Michigan home before undertaking a Ukrainian adoption.

In sharing their journey, Kim details the unbelievable turn of events with honesty, poignancy, and grace. She brings the reader as a silent witness to their journey through sights, smells, sounds, and conversations. You can feel the remnants of Soviet influence in the bleak orphanage walls and unspoken corruption meeting them at every turn. Kim invites the reader into her private thoughts and feelings, bringing a sense of awe and respect for this family who could have turned back at any time. Instead, they clung to their faith, their commitment to an orphan, and commitment to themselves.

I received an advance copy as part of her launch team. I was very curious to read it read it and I was captivated from the first page. It was hard to put down because the story was so intriguing. It was very suspenseful and eye opening. I never would have guessed that anyone would ever have to go through such an ordeal to adopt a child. She writes it in such a way that the reader feels like she is right there, going through the ordeal with her. This is a real story of courage and perseverance!

The passion of one family to bring a little boy home from across the world is astounding Kim was willing to go to any length to make sure that her son was safe, loved, protected and brought home to America- no matter the cost. She was willing to risk imprisonment and fighting a corrupt government system in a place where even the simplest of things were difficult. She did not know who to trust nor speak the language and what the ultimate cost would be to bring this boy home. You will be on the edge of your seat- I could not put it down. A MUST READ!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By 1/2 my heart in Russia on January 22, 2013
Format: Hardcover
As an "in-process" mom, struggling with the Russian adoption ban at this time, this book has given me a determination that with God all things are possible. The story of the fight to get her son home from Ukraine, is a MUST READ for all adoptive mothers. Kim is the most caring, goal-driven, loving, determined mother. Her struggles are real, but it proves that there is no struggle to great for God to overcome. Her journey tests her faith, but as an "in-process" mom, I know what a test of faith this process can be. This book proves that all things are possible with those that follow the Lord. I read this entire book in less than 27 hours (which is a challenge for a mother that works!) just because I couldn't put it down. You wont be disappointed with this read! <3 I love it!!

Format: Hardcover
"Until We All Come Home" reads like an action-packed suspense novel but the knowledge that the story was lived out by Kim and her family makes this book astounding. Kim writes with honesty and emotion that will put you on the edge of your seat one moment and leave you feeling emotionally exhausted the next.

As an adoptive mom I am not naive to the complications and complexities of international adoption. But Kim's story is unlike any other. Her determination and courage in the fight to bring Jake home no matter the cost is inspiring. Her faith, and God's hand throughout her time in the Ukraine is a testimony to His love for the fatherless and us.

This book reads like an action movie. In fact, I can see it as a movie. The story is told in such an emotionally gripping way, you just have to keep turning pages to see what happens. As I was reading, in light of current events, all I could think was, "What about the babies still there? Who is going to love them?" I recommend this book to anyone who KNOWS that God's grace is sufficient, and to anyone who is wondering if it REALLY is sufficient. The answer to that is ABSOLUTELY!

Format: Hardcover
When Kim de Blecourt and her husband decided to adopt a child from Ukraine, they knew that the process might be challenging. Nothing, however, could have prepared de Blecourt for the twisted nightmare she would endure. During her year-long struggle to extricate her newly adopted little boy from that post-Soviet country's corrupt social service and judicial systems, de Blecourt was insulted, physically assaulted, and arrested. Worse, her months of loneliness, worry, and fear drove her to the brink of spiritual despair. But God had no intention of abandoning de Blecourt or her family. Her amazing story-culminating in a spine-chilling race to freedom-offers dramatic proof that God's light shines as He cares and provides for us even in the deepest darkness.

Until We All Come Home is heart wrenching, deeply moving, and a must read for all people who love God, children, and care about His heart for the family.

Kristine McGuire - Author of Escaping the Cauldron: Exposing Occult Influences in Everyday Life (Charisma House, 2012)
