Wendy Batchelder invites readers on a wild, hold-your-breath search for belonging. Wendy, who is adopted, grew up in a loving home. Though curious about her birth parents, she has little desire to find them. Until her mother hands her an old yellowed envelope. That little package propels Wendy to look for her maternal biological grandmother, but the trek into her past reaches only dead ends and fizzles in the face of her current life—husband, children, graduate school.
And then the real journey begins, the one that leads to Wendy’s discovery that her true identity is rooted in the One who created her, rather than the “accident” of her birth or subsequent adoption. Secure in the family of God, she gives little thought to locating her birth parents. But her heavenly Father has other plans.
Seven years after her initial search, while on a getaway, an overheard conversation about DNA testing launches her on a God-led quest to find her biological family. Breakthroughs at every turn leave her—and the reader—breathless and in awe of God’s orchestration.
Pull out your tissue as you share in Wendy’s miracle, and delight in affirmations and reflections that lead you to embrace the unconditional acceptance of God and your true identity in Christ
