• “Bringing Home the Missing Linck: A Journey of Faith to Family” by Jennifer Jackson Linck ($13.95).
In time for Orphan Sunday and National Adoption Awareness Month, Jennifer Jackson Linck has released her memoir detailing her struggles with infertility and the adoption of her son.
In the book, Linck 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. 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.
A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Linck spent several years working as a reporter for The Oklahoman. She blogs about faith, family, and adoption at www.jenniferjacksonlinck.com
