Giveaway for "Children of Dreams" by Lorilyn Roberts



"Children of Dreams" is borne out of Lorilyn Roberts shattered dreams. The inspiring story of turning stolen dreams into life-changing hope not only for her but two destitute children will bring tears to the reader as he identifies with her feelings of insecurity and fear. The timeless theme of God's faithfulness - the stuff out of which God brings redemption - will leave the reader riveted to the pages of this book.

"Children of Dreams" is more than an adoption story set in the remotest regions of the planet. Facing insurmountable odds - communist blockades, life-threatening illness, betrayal and deceit - Lorilyn Roberts' courage and determination never to give up will touch the reader.

Despair transformed into heavenly joy and evil overcome by God's redemptive love will inspire even the most skeptical to believe in miracles. "Children of Dreams" resonates with Biblical truth at a deep level and in a sense is everyone's story. Timeless in nature, "Children of Dreams" is sure to be a favorite adoption story for years to come.

Ms. Roberts is intimately familiar with adoption, having also been adopted as a child, and is able to present the spirit of adoption, as never before captured, in this tender story. Comparing the adoption of her daughters to her adoption by the heavenly Father throughout the story flows naturally.

My Take: When I received my copy of "Children of Dreams" in the mail I thought I would just open it and take a look. Before I knew it, I was on Chapter Eight and looking forward to reading the rest of Lorilyn's story. Even though this is a non-fiction book it reads like fiction. Lorilyn has put so much detail into her story you feel like you've been transported to the far regions of Nepal and Vietnam along with her. She tells of her trials and hardships she endured to adopt her children Manisha and Joy. Throughout the book she relates the process of adoption with our adoption by our heavenly Father. You will not look at adoption the same after you read Loyilyn's book. You will not be sorry you read "Children of Dreams" whether you are adoptive parents or not.

  3. Thanks for the giveaway. I am a new follower. I visited Lorilyn's website and joined the newsletter list. My husband and I are in the middle of the adoption process, waiting on a match.

  4. I am already a follower. I visited Lorilyn's website and read the sample of Children of Dreams on I have several friends who have adopted children from China. My heart is touched when I see them and think about the fact that they may never have heard about Jesus if they had not been adopted. One six-year old sings Jesus Loves Me in English and Chinese. God bless all those who have given the children a chance to know Him.

  5. Thanks for your comments. When you think there are over 150 million orphans in the world, it's hard to fathom that each one of those children have a soul, and without a mother or a father, who will teach them, love them, share God's salvation?

    Oh, if more Christians could adopt, if governments weren't so corrupt, if we could just bring more hope to those children, may God give us a heart to pray for them and make a difference.
