For This Child I Prayed

Chloe's Story a Story of Hope in the Midst of Unbearable Heartache
  • By Pennie Tomlinson

How many people does it take to make a difference? For one teen mother and her newborn baby girl, it would take a family over two thousand miles away. And for one young couple, it would be this newborn baby who would make all the difference in the world.

In For This Child I Prayed, author Pennie Tomlinson shares the touching true-story of her and her familys adoption of Chloea baby born in Jamaica to a teen mother in need of support and care. Ultimately a journey of heartache, drama, danger, and hope. This young mothers cries in the night would be heard by Pennies daughter and son-in-law, Kelle and Michael, who would begin on the tortuous path to adopt young Chloe. And as a witness to this journey, Pennie demonstrates how faith in the Lords guidance and direction can offer strength in times of difficulty.

Like Hannah in the Old Testament, Kelles womb had been closed. But also like Hannah, Kelle made a vow to the Lord and pursued a child to dedicate back to him. This is Chloes story, but its also bigger than just one little girls storyit is an amazing reminder of Gods grace, faithfulness, and provision through days, weeks, and months of bureaucracy, drama, tears, and waiting.
