Publisher's Description

When a single mother with terminal cancer asks an oncology nurse to look after her son, neither can imagine what God has in store. This is the heartwarming story of how two very different women with two very different paths were brought together for one very special purpose.

Oncology nurse Tricia Seaman and her family were hoping to adopt a son. They were months into the grueling process when she met Trish Somers, a terminally ill cancer patient. Trish was a single mother and her eight-year-old son Wesley was her entire world. As the young mother poured out her fears and emotions, it became clear that this was unlike any other nurse-patient relationship Tricia had in her career. When they learned that the cancer had spread and Trish only had a short time to live, she looked at Tricia, a complete stranger three weeks ago, and asked if she could raise Wesley when she passed away.

God Gave Me You tells the true story of how these two incredible mothers met, the immediate bond they formed, and the ups and downs of joining families as Trish’s earthly life ebbed away. This heartwarming tale inspires readers to find the courage to trust in faith and never give up. The miracle of these two families coming together demonstrates that family isn’t always blood; often, it’s made up of the people God gives you if you have a willing heart. God Gave Me You is a story you can turn to again and again when you’re looking for hope, inspiration, and a reason to believe in miracles.

Editorial Reviews

“God Gave Me You is a must-read for anyone who has ever questioned God's plan in their lives. This book is a beautiful reminder of how God continues to guide us—even during moments of extreme pain and loss. The story of these two women and a precious little boy serves as an example of how some of the most precious moments in our lives actually rise from the ashes of our hardest trials.”
"A powerful, masterfully written love story full of heartbreak and joy against all odds. This gripping true story of compassion, faith, and grace under fire will leave you forever changed."
"Seaman never dreamed that entering a hospital room while an oncology nurse in Harrisburg, Penn., would set in motion a series of events that led her to adopt a dying patient’s son. Seaman, a wife and mother of five children of her own, had her heart set on adopting an infant to bring into the family when she met ailing Trish Somers. Over a short period of time, as Somers’s cancer began to spread, the two became close, but Seaman was left stunned when Somers asked her to take care of her young son, Wesley, after she passed away. Trying to downplay this shocking request, Seaman let the question sink in; she went home, told her husband, and prayed for an answer. The subsequent months saw the entire Seaman family upending their lives to care for Somers in their own home, help Wesley adjust to his mom’s terminal diagnosis, and slowly knit these two lonely individuals into their bustling family unit. With the help of Nichols, the narrative moves swiftly, and Seamen’s internal search for strength in faith comes across on every page. The authors shares this remarkable story in chronological order, and readers will find themselves both amazed and challenged by the Seaman family’s unconditional love for Somers and her son as they truly live out the biblical edict to love one’s neighbor as oneself."
“This miraculous true story will certainly capture readers’ hearts and immensely inspire and encourage. Point this one out to customers looking for a rich story of God’s goodness.”
