There are an estimated 20 million orphans in the country of India. Thanks to Kelly and Scott Parkison, that number has decreased by one. Having promised to never return to India after her experience on the reality show The Amazing Race, Kelly never dreamed she would one day be a mother to a beautiful Indian girl named Lyla. This is the amazing and true story of how God uses the most unlikely circumstances for His greater purpose.

Orphan care is warfare. Whether you set out to adopt children, or care for orphans in a variety of other God-reflecting ways, you will face obstacles and opposition. But it’s worth it. The Parkison’s story of adoption highlights the real trials and the deep joys of sacrificial love. It also magnifies the grace of God needed for such an endeavor, and the grace that God has shown us, as His adopted children. Read and be edified!
---Tony Merida, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Imago Dei Church, Raleigh, NC, Co-Author of Orphanology
Gracing the stage of the Miss America Pageant and competing on The Amazing Race both pale in comparison to the adventure that my friend Kelly Parkison has been on in recent years. In He Knows Her Name, this pastor’s wife and mother of five takes us along with her to the land of India as well as the depth of her soul to remind us that we don’t have to be on a mission trip or adopt a child to be used by God. We just need to be available and obedient. With a voice that’s refreshingly honest and beautifully transparent, Kelly pulls back the curtain of the journey that awaits those who are obedient to love one more.

About the Book▼▲
Calling the Parkison’s adoption story a rollercoaster ride of emotion would be an understatement. After almost every major decision in the Parkison’s adoption process, God put a twist in their carefully laid plans only to lead them to greater opportunities. Faced with an overwhelming amount of fundraising, mountains of adoption paperwork, an unexpected pregnancy, a medical issue to patch with their new daughter, and the adjustment of bringing their child into a new culture, the Parkisons clung to God through their whirlwind adoption of Lyla. Their heartwarming story is a beautiful testament to the gift of adoption on this earth and the love of God for all of us as His children.
