One family’s adoption story is an amazing reminder of God’s grace, faithfulness, and provision.

Pennie Tomlinson, an adoptive parent and former missionary to Jamaica, published an account of her and her family’s adoption of Chloe, a baby born in Jamaica to a teen mother, For This Child I Prayed (Chloe’s Story: A Story of Hope in the Midst of Unbearable Heartache).
The author, who is adopted herself, narrates the ordeal she, her daughter Kelle, and son-in-law Michael went through to adopt Chloe. It was a journey of heartache, drama, and danger; their experiences reveal the intricacies of international adoption. At the same time, it is also a journey of hope and faith and of calling. Pennie was called to serve as a missionary in Jamaica and became an adoptive parent herself, and Kelle and Michael, being unable to conceive, were called to adopt Chloe.
Pennie’s journey to mission and the family’s eventual adoption of Chloe started when Pennie found a sketch of a beautiful little black child with earrings (see book cover) in an antique shop. She felt immediately drawn to the subject of the sketch, whose huge almond eyes seemed to read deep into her soul.
“I knew then and there that she would be going home with me,” said the author. “It would be nearly a decade later before I knew the significance of this sketch and this little girl herself, but she always had a place of honor in my home as if I knew her personally.”
One day after Thanksgiving, Pennie heard a voice that told her, “You will be moving to Jamaica to do ministry.” She believed it was a revelation about her future but her commitment to Jamaica grew stronger months later only when she found behind the sketch’s frame, which she bought years earlier in the antique shop, the name of the artist, and date and place it was created – Jamaica.
