Surprised by Children: A Memoir
Harold Myra has complied an amazing track record in Christian publishing. Since taking over the financially-strapped magazine, Christianity Today, in 1975, he has turned it into a successful family of eight highly-respected magazines. But his greatest challenge came several years later when his wife, Jeannette, approached him with a plan that would change his life forever. At an age when most men were seeing their nests empty and anticipating grandchildren, Jeannette wanted them to become the parents of an African-America boy from a deeply troubled home. Since then, Harold and Jeannette have adopted a total of three African-American children. Surprised by Children is their inspiring and touching story. Yet the focus of this wonderful story is not race, but the love that a man can experience, with God’s help, for children that have been neglected by society.
