From the Back Cover: When a single mother with terminal cancer asks an oncology nurse to look after her son, neither can imagine what God has in store. This is the heartwarming story of how two very different women with two very different paths were brought together for one very special purpose.
Oncology nurse Tricia Seaman and her family were hoping to adopt a son. They were months into the grueling process when she met Trish Somers, a terminally ill cancer patient. Trish was a single mother and her eight-year-old son Wesley was her entire world. As the young mother poured out her fears and emotions, it became clear that this was unlike any other nurse-patient relationship Tricia had in her career. When they learned that the cancer had spread and Trish only had a short time to live, she looked at Tricia, a complete stranger three weeks ago, and asked if she could raise Wesley when she passed away.
God Gave Me You tells the true story of how these two incredible mothers met, the immediate bond they formed, and the ups and downs of joining families as Trish’s earthly life ebbed away. This heartwarming tale inspires readers to find the courage to trust in faith and never give up. The miracle of these two families coming together demonstrates that family isn’t always blood; often, it’s made up of the people God gives you if you have a willing heart. God Gave Me You is a story you can turn to again and again when you’re looking for hope, inspiration, and a reason to believe in miracles.
It is amazing to me how God can work all things together for our good for multiple individuals at the same time. Trish is the mother of Wesley and Trish has been given a cancer diagnosis that will be fatal. Tricia is a nurse that is working to adopt a son. Tricia is the nurse that will take care of Trish when she comes in for her treatments. These two women become friends eventually leading to Tricia adopting Wesley. God, Himself, put this together as it is something only He can do. Os what happens to these two families easy? No. The fact that it works at all shows how God was able to join these families. This story will make you laugh, but will make you cry as you witness the power of a miracle. This is a story that will help you see the greatness God has put here.
