One Step of Obedience Led to Thousands
 
Irene and Domingo Garcia began their married lives at sixteen, already expecting a baby. Their first ten years together included 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 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.
 
Rich in Love is about a family cemented in hope. About a need to love the orphan. And about a God who never, ever gives up.

Incredible, powerful and inspirational!
5 stars By Ruth Woodhouse, Oct 24 2017
This is an amazing story of God's work in the lives of an ordinary couple, whose first decade of marriage was a terrible mess.  When Irene discovered she was pregnant, her ex-boyfriend, Domingo immediately committed to marrying her, even though they were only 16.  He had his positive qualities, despite a terrible childhood, but his alcohol abuse destroyed their relationship and they were headed for divorce.  That was until they each separately committed their lives to Christ.and were transformed, with a whole new course in life. Soon they became convicted of God calling them to adopt orphans, including children who needed new homes due to atrocious neglect and abuse. Most of the stories are heart-rending and there was constant heartache for Irene and Domingo over many years. Despite Irene feeling she could give no more, they couldn't escape their  mission though and eventually felt God leading them to a whole new work in a new place. God opened doors for them in remarkable ways, leaving them in no doubt this was His plan.  From this stage the stories become even more gripping and it's extremely hard to put the book down.  In partnership with God, Irene and Domingo are an extraordinary couple, doing a mighty work of love for Him. He constantly affirms, with amazing answers to prayer, that they are doing His will. The world needs more committed and big-hearted Christians like them!
