<p><i>Redeeming Ruth</i> is the inspirational, true story of an abandoned baby, a devastating diagnosis, and the way God loves broken, hurting people through us-even though we may be broken and hurt, too.</p>

<p>When Meadow met her, Ruth was a sixteen-month-old child that some church friends were hosting from an orphanage in Uganda. She had cerebral palsy and was so weak she couldn't lift her head. Meadow had always felt a call to adopt, but was this what God meant? Part family drama, part travel adventure, and part memoir, <i>Redeeming Ruth</i> is a heartwarming, against-all-odds story about the most unlikely pairing of a a typical American family and a physically challenged orphaned girl from Uganda. Much more than an adoption story, this book explores what happens when we sacrificially reach out and share God's love with others.</p>

<p>Ruth's story will inspire families considering adoption, people raising or teaching children with special needs, caregivers, and those grieving the loss of a loved one, ministering to people with disabilities, or striving to serve God despite their own wounded hearts and broken dreams.</p>

<p><b>Features:</b>
<br>• Includes a Reader's Guide at the end of the book for each chapter for group discussion or personal rejection.
<br>• An eight-page insert with personal photos will be included.
<br>• All personal proceeds from this book benefit orphans and people with disabilities in Uganda.</p>

Excerpt

Excerpt from: Redeeming Ruth

:

&lt;p&gt;&ldquo;As I&rsquo;d often told my children, there is nothing of value that may be lost here that will not be given back in heaven. &lt;i&gt;Everything life takes, love restores.&lt;/i&gt; Everything. Broken bodies. Broken hearts. Broken dreams. No matter how painful. No&#160;matter how devastating, God can transform our greatest sorrow into something good. We simply have to keep beating&#160;our wings, keep trusting to discover what it will be. In the meantime, he gives us the hope to keep living.&rdquo;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&ldquo;Theresa pointed to a brown backpack with a torn zipper as I joined her at the table. On front Ruth&rsquo;s name was printed&#160;in large, black letters. &lsquo;I&rsquo;m saving it for whoever decides to adopt.&rsquo; Curious, I pulled out several crumpled summer dresses&#160;followed by a rich burgundy gown with a white satin collar and pink rosettes. Beneath were two thickly woven blankets,&#160;one red and one white. Who had chosen them? Someone who cared&mdash;that was obvious. Someone who wanted Ruth to&#160;be warm and well-loved when she arrived among strangers in a foreign land. &lt;i&gt;Someone who hoped she&rsquo;d be redeemed&lt;/i&gt;.&rdquo;&lt;/p&gt;
