Summary

When Kim de Blecourt and her husband decided to adopt a child from Ukraine, they knew that the process might be challenging. Nothing, however, could have prepared de Blecourt for the twisted nightmare she would endure. During her year-long struggle to extricate her newly adopted little boy from that post-Soviet country's corrupt social service and judicial systems, de Blecourt was insulted, physically assaulted, and arrested. Worse, her months of loneliness, worry, and fear drove her to the brink of spiritual despair.

But God had no intention of abandoning de Blecourt or her family. Her amazing story - culminating in a spine-chilling race to freedom - offers dramatic proof that God's light shines on even in the deepest darkness.

incredible story of love for a child

Would you consider the audio edition of Until We All Come Home to be better than the print version?

Yes. No one can tell their story better than they themselves can. While Kim's narration lacks polish in places, and her dialogue is frustrating, this is an incredible story. Kim lived through these experiences - the pain, the anger, the frustration, and you can hear it truthfully in her voice.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me cry and made me angry. The bureaucracy of the Ukraine's system of adoptions, contrasted with Kim's obvious love for this little boy, was touching and moving.

Any additional comments?

This book, in many ways, is similar to Love in the Driest Season. Kim relies on God for her strength, and her Christian faith guides her actions, while Meely Tucker (Love in the Driest Season) relied on his own determination and that of his wife... but both books detail foreign countries' policies of adoption with humanity and compassion. Both are well worth the read.
