Reclaiming Lily

A Review

Reclaiming Lily is a wonderful book about the joys and struggles after adopting a child. Lily is a troubled teen who was adopted 17 years ago from China. She was adopted by a wonderful family consisting of Pastor Andrew Powell and Gloria Powell. There life was wonderful until Lily started acting out. Struggling with the challenges of what to do with Lily, Andrew and Gloria are contacted by Lily's biological sister Dr. Kai Chang. At first Gloria resist meeting with Dr. Chang, but when she finds out that it might be a life or death situation for Lily. Andrew and Gloria agree to meet with her. What follows is a fantastic story that depicts the grace of God and how he allows difficult times to come to allow beautiful changes in our lives. This is truly a wonderful story to read . Patty Lacy has written a beautiful, poignant tale of learning to trust God even in the most challenging situations.
