Irene and Domingo Garcia began their married lives at sixteen, already expecting a baby. Their first ten years together were marked by Domingo’s alcoholism and abuse, and Irene’s desperate prayers for answers. Then a miracle happened: Domingo pleaded for forgiveness. As God healed their marriage, Irene and Domingo adopted a little girl - and a new season began for an imperfect couple who were willing to say yes to each other and to God.
Over the past forty-five years, the Garcias have birthed, fostered, or adopted thirty-two children. Their story, told in Rich in Love: When God Rescues Messy People, holds difficult endings as well as promising new beginnings. Above all, their story reminds us what can happen when ordinary people submit to God’s call.

- Learn how to have faith where you thought you had none by aussiegirl on 2/4/2015
RICH IN LOVE
This story will enrich your heart and soul. As I read this story I often wondered how she did it. Only God's guidance, love, and her faith is all that I can say.
How she dealt with all the hardships which seemed more than most endure is beyond me. She is a much stronger woman than I think I could ever have been but she also has much more faith.
They had over the pasted 45 years of marriage birthed adopted and fostered thirty two children. I couldn't hardly handle working and taking care of 2 kids, and two dogs ,by myself, my kids were good.
If you are like me and you sometimes wonder where Gods is when you need him the most in your life, then this book is one you better grab and read with an open mind. It will open your eyes, mind, and soul to the true meaning of a God who never ever gives up on you. You'll also see true faith at work.
Grab this book and get faith. I recommend this highly.
I received this beautiful book free from David C Cook for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else's.
Thank you for a wonderful book to review.
