There are an estimated 20 million orphans in the country of India. Thanks to Kelly and Scott Parkison, that number has decreased by one. Having promised to never return to India after her experience on the reality show The Amazing Race, Kelly never dreamed she would one day be a mother to a beautiful Indian girl named Lyla. This is the amazing and true story of how God uses the most unlikely circumstances for His greater purpose. Calling the Parkison’s adoption story a rollercoaster ride of emotion would be an understatement. After almost every major decision in the Parkison’s adoption process, God put a twist in their carefully laid plans only to lead them to greater opportunities. Faced with an overwhelming amount of fundraising, mountains of adoption paperwork, an unexpected pregnancy, a medical issue to patch with their new daughter, and the adjustment of bringing their child into a new culture, the Parkisons clung to God through their whirlwind adoption of Lyla. Their heartwarming story is a beautiful testament to the gift of adoption on this earth and the love of God for all of us as His children.
As one of the most heartbreaking experiences in life, infertility can shatter dreams and crush spirits in its unyielding wake. Almost taboo, this struggle is rarely discussed within many Christian circles, which can leave affected couples with more questions than answers. The Inconceivable Truth provides a new approach for addressing some of the struggles Christian couples face today and the truth of what it is to be unable to conceive. It is the author’s hope that as you confront some of the same issues she did, her story will help you to make God-honouring decisions and understand better the place of infertility in our lives. To find peace and joy in this difficult season, our counsel must be rooted in the Bible and in Christ. Join Joanna as she shares what God taught her during her family’s infertility journey. May His book come alive in ways that will excite your soul and draw your heart and eyes upward to Jesus.
