Sometimes life presents predicaments so difficult and worrisome it seems we'll never see our way through them. We may even feel like giving up. But when we persevere through it all, we eventually realize all those obstacles, all those trials, are only stepping-stones to get us where we need to be. That's why we must hold on and pray for strength and patience. Author J. Elaine Cottrell's Breana's Full Circle is the story of a little girl whose life began on the rough side of the mountain. Abandoned at eight months by her mother, Breana is placed in foster care, where she is abused and bullied. Her situation finally brightens when Ambassador Henry Noble and his wife, Penelope, adopt the young girl. Breana thrives in her loving, happy home-it's her dream come true. The family's joy is short-lived. Breana, the love of her family's life, is kidnapped, severely beaten, and left for dead. Breana's Full Circle is the remarkable story of overcoming adversity. Despite all she suffers through, she fights back to win the hearts of many, including the love of her life, and discovers a secret that will change her forever. We can all learn from Breana's strength and faith.
