(Losing Sight) Until We All Come Home by Kim De Blecourt [Review]

Every one of us has to go down many paths on this journey of life. Some are better illuminated than others.

One foggy path my husband and I have been walking for more than 14 years now is traveling hand in hand with our precious daughter, Rachel. Together we stumble along the road of undiagnosed disability.

Losing Sight

Although I am blessed and honored to be Rachel’s mom, there are difficult times. I so badly want to understand her prognosis, to know what to look for in the area of future health concerns, to learn from other parents who have already traveled the way of her particular diagnosis, and to walk with those who are just beginning that same journey. Yet, with no diagnosis, that is impossible.

Sometimes I question God’s wisdom in giving our family a child with disabilities—and one with no answers, to boot. There are moments when I struggle with anger. Still, others when I feel abandoned, unable to sense God’s presence.

This last one is the worst. And I don’t think I’m alone in this. You likely lose touch with the Lord at times as well. We all do. Not because He is absent but because we let our circumstances obscure Him.

Yet He always proves faithful!

Author Kim de Blecourt attests to that in her new book.

Until We All Come Home

In her wonderful book, Until We All Come Home, Kim de Blecourt writes with refreshing openness and honesty about the times she lost sight of God in the journey to bring her adopted son home from the Ukraine. Her family’s roller coaster experiences sorely tested their faith. Kim doesn’t hesitate to share this struggle, as well as the Lord’s steadfast presence, with her readers.

Until We All Come Home: A Harrowing Journey, A Mother's Courage, A Race to Freedom  -     By: Kim Blecourt, Ginger Kolbaba<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />

Until We All Come Home: A Harrowing Journey, A Mother’s Courage, A Race to Freedom by Kim Blecourt & Ginger Kolbaba is a gripping account of the de Blecourt family’s trials in adopting little Jake. Trapped in a post-Soviet society still reeling from the effects of communism, Kim was assaulted, ridiculed, and ultimately arrested. Yet she never gave up on her son just as God never abandoned her.

Over the long lonely months of isolation, raised expectations, and dashed hopes, Kim periodically questioned God’s presence. These compelling scenes of her despair and God’s faithfulness bring an incredibly inspiring aspect to the de Blecourt’s adoption story.

Until We All Come Home is a book you’ll be reading long into the night. It is a story of adoption. It is a story of trials and celebrations. It is a story of perseverance and faithfulness.

Ultimately, it is a story of God’s love in action, and it is told by the de Blecourt’s for His glory.

Circumstances can be instrumental in us losing sight of God. However, He is ever faithful. Click To Tweet

  1. The most serious “loss of sight” was definitely during those first years of battling infertility. And, as you said, God is faithful.

  2. Thank you, Julie. I’m praying for you as you continue your journey with Him.

    During the process of divorce (from husband of 15 years) then finding my way as a single mom, working full-time and having difficulty in church lead to some late night conversations with God. Ultimately much closer and deeper walk with Him!

      Thanks for sharing! At the onset of pain, it is easy to lose sight of God. He beckons us to draw near to Him as we journey through the suffering. Thankful you did.
