The heartrending true life depiction of a girl that no one loved or wanted. Her mother was negligent at best, and abusive at worst, ultimately giving her girls away to the system. Dorie was in one abusive adoptive home after another, and tells how it feels. She ultimately reunites with her bio dad who turns out to be just as evil as the rest of the people in her life, but I love that Dorie's story doesn't end in desolation.

She finds God, then a husband, and ultimately is the mother of her own children. She talks about redemption, and how her life was transformed! ( )

Wow the sweet things you find in the trash heep. Someone was tossing a box of books and I rescued this one. I am so glad I did. It is the story of Doris Van Stone. She grew up in California in what can only be decribed as shocking conditions. I won't give away too much of the story for you.....but it is truely a story worth reading. Her story shows how gracious God is to all who call upon the name of His son Jesus!

"Someone has said that when you have nothing left but God, you realize that God is enough. God has stood beside me when no one else wanted me. He was not going to abandon me now. God would have to heal the emotional pain that throbbed though my body." As a child, Dorie was rejected by her mother, sent to live in an orphanage where she was regularly beaten by the orphanage director, was beaten time and again by cruel foster parents and was daily told that she was ugly and unloveable. Dorie never knew love until a group of college students visited the orphanage and told her that God loved her. As she accepted that love, her life began to change. Dorie is the thrilling, true account of what God's love can do in a life. Dorie Van Stone takes readers through the heard years of her childhood into her fascinating years as a missionary with her husband to the Dani tribe in New guinea. With the rise of illegitimate births, the increase in divorce statistics, and the frightening escalation of child abuse, this story stands as a reminder that God's love, forgiveness and grace are greater that human hurt and sorrow.
