Children should feel unconditionally valued and accepted regardless of birth circumstance, race, or ability—and Trisha Campbell and her family rose to this challenge. After a faith search inspired her to care for hungry orphans in a developing country, she heard God’s calling and adopted five children to join her biological three.
Life in a big, transracial family can be difficult, especially when many in society don’t think White families should adopt kids of color. But when God is in the lead, every day is an adventure—never lonely, never boring.
A heartfelt memoir of God’s grand design for her life purpose, Eight Was Enough chronicles a devoted Christian parent’s journey in trusting God with unwavering faith to create a divinely inspired, transracial family. Full of spiritual insight for parents on their own adoption or fostering adventure, this true story will guide you through the sometimes difficult but always rewarding and adventurous path of adding a child to your home—and your heart.
A family is created through love and God’s purpose, not color or ability. Get Eight Was Enough now for the inspiration and hope to answer the calling on your own parenting adventure, no matter what comes your way.
