Dreaming of a Daughter — Amy C. Patterson
Separated literally a world apart, this mother and daughter were each brokenhearted from different forms of abandonment by their biological mothers. Similarly, each have (or had) to face life-threatening diseases as well. Joined through a series of miracles to become adoptive mother and daughter, they were each made emotionally whole again. The two now live happily together in paradise with their large, loving family.
This is the true story of their journey to find one another. It describes the tale of how they ended up on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, halfway between each of their respective birthplaces of China and Michigan.
“You can feel the love, passion and strength in Amy’s words, as she gives a heartfelt account of her loving quest to raise a daughter. Her story is an honest look at the trials, tribulations and heartwarming rewards of adoption. Her faith-filled journey will lift you up and bring tears of joy to your eyes.”
— Diane Devereaux, The Canning Diva, author of Canning Full Circle and the Complete Guide to Pressure Canning, of Grand Rapids, Michigan
“An enthralling testimony of patience, perseverance, love, and faith. A wonderful example of what can happen once we finally learn to surrender to God. To let go and let God. It is a witness to the truth that God may not be there when you want Him, but He is always on time.”
— Reverend Tom Evans (Amy’s pastor during the adoption process)
