Using Random.org the five winners were selected who will be sent copies of this book. I am in the process of contacting the winners and will mail their books out to them within the week.

#11 - Elisha C.
# 7 - Barbara
EXTRA WINNER (if she'll note this):
crwread. You didn't leave an e-mail address so I have no way to contact you. However, based on the comment you left I would love to send you a copy of this book as well. If you see this, please leave a comment and/or contact me via e-mail - readingtoknow (at) gmail (dot) com
If you get back to me, you too shall have a book! And thank you for sharing your family's story.
(And as a note to everyone, e-mail addresses are so necessary and handy when it comes to contests such as this!)
Now, if your name wasn't selected, I hope you'll look into this book a little further and consider purchasing a copy for yourself. To learn a little bit more about the story, you can check out this 5 minute video which tells you a bit more about Mrs. Fast's life. I think you will be simultaneously overwhelmed and blessed by it!
If you are planning to read it and/or have already done so, I'd also recommend that you check out this talk that Mrs. Fast gave which my husband and I found to be very encouraging!
Again, I just want to note that I fell strongly enough about her story and her desire to open our eyes to the needs of the orphans all around the globe that I purchased these books for the giveaway myself. I wish I could give absolutely everyone a copy but I'll start here and see what happens. I hope you will read it. If you find her story thought provoking and if it stirs your heart a little, I'd love to hear from you!
Let's end with a song, shall we? I was recently introduced to this song and I find myself growing more fond of it by the listen.
