About the book

Extraordinary: Stories of Adopting Children With Down Syndrome will introduce you to thirteen families who, with God’s help, said “YES!” to the most rewarding journey of their lives. Inside these pages, you will catch a glimpse of the struggles, the successes, and the unspeakable joy they experienced as they welcomed a child with Down syndrome into their forever family.

It also includes a statement of “We Believe…” listing the many reasons that children with Down syndrome are more alike than different from a typical child. A Resource Guide will help you find general information such as “How to Adopt” and “Financial Assistance Organizations.” If you’re not able to adopt but would like to help, there are resources in “Orphan Care” to guide you to what best suits your situation.

The Vision

Since starting their publishing company, Marlin and Lisa’s number one goal has been to release a book containing stories of families who have adopted a child or children with Down syndrome. Having adopted four children of their own, three with Down syndrome, the project is obviously very dear to their heart.

With the generous help of Cady Driver as the compiler, Marlin and Lisa were able to make their dream a reality.
