Ten years of wedded bliss and two miscarriages later, a woman wakes up one Saturday morning to double lines on the pregnancy test kit. It was the result of waiting patiently in the unknown with the biological clock working against her; the result of adopting a healthier lifestyle, positive mindset, and spiritual learning; the result that would change the course of her life forever. But as much as there is immense joy in conceiving naturally after having tried both IUI and IVF, fear struck in the depths of her heart. Can her baby make it to the crucial Week 24?
A Gift From Heaven tells the tale of a mother’s faith journey in seeking God, in choosing to believe in His plan even in the darkest hour, and in being richly rewarded with a rainbow baby after the storms.
A Gift From Heaven is a heartfelt and courageous sharing of one woman’s journey from hope to fulfillment. Felicia takes you on a journey where you’ll share her struggles and concerns, and cheer with her through every milestone.
For anyone who’s ever had to overcome odds to see their dreams materialise, this book brings hope, encouragement, and companionship for the journey ahead.”
