Book Give-Away: "Are We There Yet?"

Read below for an opportunity to win this book!

How would you like to have 22 children? How would you like to have adopted most of them even though the majority have significant health challenges, including serious special needs? Sounds daunting, doesn't it? Maybe even impossible for anyone to do such a thing? 

Product DetailsBelieve it or not, someone has: Hector and Sue Badeau. And they've written a book about it: Are We There Yet?: The Ultimate Road Trip: Adopting and Raising 22 Kids! I'm tired just reading the title. How in the world could the Badeaus have that much energy and...shall we say it: love!?

But they do—on both counts! I have met this unassuming and humble couple and their incredible selflessness gives such glory to God. And God has used them in so many ways, including fighting for the needy in the halls of our government.

I'm so pleased to be able to make a copy of their book available to one of my readers. This is a page-turning story that will have you "ahhhh-ing" and "ohhhhh-ing" and loving each of their wonderful children. It will increase your faith that if God could empower the Badeaus to fulfill His plan for them in such challenging circumstances, then He can do it for you! And it is also filled with parenting principles and spiritual truths. 

Regardless of the drawing, go to Amazon to order it.

Want to win this book in my drawing? Just write a comment on my blog or email me at kathyspeak (at) dc (dot) rr (dot) com. I'll pick the winner on Wednesday, November 20th.

  1. As a mom of three children brought into our family through adoption I love to hear adoption stories, especially those of people who put their faith and trust in God, and would love to learn more about Mrs. Badeau's family. I've heard about her book from others and it sounds like she has a most inspiring story to share.

  3. Kathy, I have several younger friends who have adopted ( one dear friend just adopted a special needs paralyzed baby girl and within a month God miraculously began working, she has begun to move her feet and legs) and others who are in the process of adopting. It would be fun to bless one of them with this inspirational book. Thank you for offering it. Blessings to you. ginger smith
