"Someone has said that when you have nothing left but God, you realize that God is enough. God had stood beside me when no one else wanted me. He was not going to abandon me now. God would have to heal the emotional pain that throbbed through my body."
As a child, Dorie was rejected by her mother, sent to live in an orphanage where she was regularly beaten by the orphanage director, was beaten time and again by cruel foster parents, and was daily told that she was ugly and unlovable. Dorie never knew love until a group of college students visited the orphanage and told her that God loved her. As she accepted that love, her life began to change.
Dorie is a thrilling true account of what God's love can do in a life. Doris Van Stone takes readers through the hard years of her childhood into her fascinating years as a missionary with her husband to the Dani tribe in New Guinea. With the rise of illegitimate births, the increase in divorce statistics, and the frightening escalation of child abuse, this story stands as a reminder that God's love, forgiveness, and grace are greater than human hurt and sorrow.

Janet Dyson5 Stars Out Of 5February 26, 2010Janet DysonI recommend this book to anyone who has any type of pain in their heart. It is also a good tool for those who are helping someone else work through problems. It gives you a picture of the wounded heart. The greatest message is there is hope and healing in Jesus.
Lynn Vandenoever5 Stars Out Of 5November 16, 2009Lynn VandenoeverI was privileged to hear Dorie speak years ago. I bought the book for one of my friends who has gone through similar circumstances in the hopes it will help her.
Debbie5 Stars Out Of 5January 6, 2008DebbieThis story was so sad, I could scarcely believe it...but the miracle of it all was that Doris didn't let it ruin her life. My heart goes out to all those who have suffered through similar circumstances. Thank God He can help anyone overcome anything that Satan meant for harm!
