Today I am reviewing In His Father’s Arms, a novella from An Amish Cradle by Beth Wiseman.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Ruth Anne has been dreaming about motherhood her entire life.
Now she is doubly excited that she and her best friend are due with their children the same week.
But when Ruth Anne s baby is born with Down syndrome, she and her husband struggle to understand God s plan.

In His Father’s Arms is a beautiful, albeit unexpected story of a young couple who are expecting their first baby. Ruth Anne and Levi have been preparing for months… waiting anxiously for their baby’s arrival.
But they find themselves unprepared when they receive the news that their precious Joshua is a special needs baby.
Levi, feeling like it’s his fault, pulls away from the church, Ruth Anne, and baby Joshua. Meanwhile, Ruth Anne feel more and more frustrated that her husband has become a stranger to her.
Most people already know – or could guess – that the Amish believe babies are a blessing… and a baby born with any type of handicap or problem – is a special blessing from God.
Babies are a blessing!
But raising a family takes a lot of hard work – from everyone. A special needs child requires much more work at times. I have some experience with this… and I can tell you it’s difficult, it’s frustrating, it’s expensive – and it’s worth every penny… every tear… every moment.
This story reminds us that we can do anything… with God’s help.
