Bella is one month old when her mother abandons her at a run down daycare in Durban, her destiny left in the hands of strangers. Haunted by the repeated rejection of her early years, she longs to find where she truly belongs. This is her journey as she searches for her true home, guided by the hand of her one constant Father.
Chelsea was brought up in an affluent farming family on the North Coast of Kwazulu-Natal. She knows she wants to do something significant with her life, but she’s not sure what it is. She and her husband, Derrick, find themselves risking their reputations, their inheritances and their family relationships to do what they believe is right with regards to adopting. Along the way, Chelsea is forced to admit that her mind and heart do not always align, and the unconditional love she has for her adopted African child is marred by the sporadic exposure of underlying racial discrimination in her patterns of thinking.
Inspired by a true adoption story, this novel is a call to lay down agendas and fears and to have the courage to follow God beyond the safety of familiar shores. It will challenge you, inspire you, and leave you hungry for the 'more' that God has for you.
