In His Father's Arms by Beth Wiseman
Ruth Anne and her best friend Bethany are both young wive's who have found they were expecting their first babies at just about the same time. Exciting news for both of them and as Bethany's little perfect girl is born, Ruth Anne looks forward to her blessed event.
Her husband Levi holds an apprehension about the birth in his heart and the apprehension holds true. As this young teenage couple trys to cope with the fact that their child is born with Down syndrome, Levi seems to drift farther and farther away. The difficult time of this causes Ruth Anne to seek help away from the Amish community amongst Englischers who welcome her with open arms.
The story is sad as it starts. Prayer, faith and love come together to form a beautiful story which follows the plan that God had prepared for them.
I purchased this as part of a 4 part book by four wonderful authors, Beth Wiseman, Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller and Vannetta Chapman. It is a blessed read. I really recommend this read.
