Hopelessness and loss are the common companions of infertility. All infertile couples long for resolution, for one more glimpse of hope... but that hope fades with each attempt to conceive a child.
Empty Hands to Open Arms is one such journey. Page after page, Paula Hernando describes the loss of a child she would never get to meet, conceived only in her and her husband's imagination. She illuminates her lifelong struggle of trying to bend the hand of God in order to conceive or grant her a child through adoption.
Paula's story offers hope where there seems to be only waiting, pain, and frustration. This is a testimony of the relentless faithfulness of God to heal the broken-hearted in surrender to His ultimate plan. Paula's challenge was to learn that her resolution had been there all along.

Beautifully written. Paula shares with transparency and vulnerability her journey from frustration with childlessness (empty hands) to the place of fulfillment in her privileged role as the "other mother" in the lives of many children (open arms). This is a good read for anyone who finds themselves longing and striving for something that seems to be outside of their grasp. And she ends her little book with the greatest story of hope ever written.
