About the Book: 
Redeeming Ruth is the inspirational, true story of an abandoned baby, a devastating diagnosis, and the way God loves broken, hurting people through us--even though we may be broken and hurt, too.

When Meadow met her, Ruth was a sixteen-month-old child that some church friends were hosting from an orphanage in Uganda. She had cerebral palsy and was so weak she couldn't lift her head. Meadow had always felt a call to adopt, but was this what God meant? Part family drama, part travel adventure, and part memoir, Redeeming Ruth is a heartwarming, against-all-odds story about the most unlikely pairing of a typical American family and a physically challenged orphaned girl from Uganda. Much more than an adoption story, this book explores what happens when we sacrificially reach out and share God's love with others.

Ruth's story will inspire families considering adoption, people raising or teaching children with special needs, caregivers, and those grieving the loss of a loved one, ministering to people with disabilities, or striving to serve God despite their own wounded hearts and broken dreams.

My Review:  
Ok I am going to do something that I don't normally do but I have just finish reading "Redeeming Ruth" by Meadow Rue Merrill and I am asking all my reader friends to buy this book because all the proceeds will benefit orphans and people with disabilities in Uganda. This book is a really inspiring story. This statement is what I posted on my Facebook as soon as I finished reading the book. I wanted to read this book because I have four adopted grandsons, though none of them was adopted from another country. This book made the tears fall while reading about the issues Ruth had.

The pictures are an added bonus. There are questions at the end of the book to help you discover your own story as you share God's love with others.

I think everyone should read this book and discover how wonderful love can be.

I received a complimentary copy from Christian Women Affiliate and the author. These opinions are mine.
