Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 I have always wanted to do something outside the norm, but my parents were not sure about the idea. They thought it was far-fetched. They did not say no, but they were not sure about it. #2 I had always wanted to volunteer in Africa, and in 2006, I went to Uganda to do so. I was in awe of the country and its people. I loved visiting the villages, where I saw men and women shucking corn, cooking, and talking among themselves. #3 I had become obsessed with Uganda after my trip there, and when I returned to the United States to finish high school, I decided to spend one year in Uganda teaching kindergarten. #4 I left home to work with children in Uganda. The trip was long, and I was excited and nervous at the same time. I slowly settled into my tiny room in the back of the pastor’s house, where I lived with 102 children.

From the time Jennifer Linck was old enough to rock her Cabbage Patch Doll, she dreamed of being a mother. As her friends began welcoming tiny bundles of joy, Jennifer struggled to conceive a child. As a gut-wrenching desire to be a mom built within her, God began to place adoption on Jennifer's heart. In 2010, Jennifer and her husband, John, felt God leading them to build their family through international adoption. Eighteen months after they began their journey to Ethiopia, God took them on a detour that only He could have orchestrated. After accepting a job at the local homeless shelter, Jennifer began to see how God truly wanted her to live her life serving the least of these. As God transformed her heart and showed her how to truly love the poor, the widow, and the orphan, He began to weave together a story that would eventually lead to her son. In Bringing Home the Missing Linck, Jennifer shares how the pain and heartache of infertility became the building blocks God used to strengthen her faith and make her heart more like His, as He answered her prayers for a child.
