When life looks radically different than the plan we have for ourselves, it's the lucky few that recognize God's plan is best. That's what adoptive mom Heather Avis learned, and that's the invitation of this book.

As the mother of three adopted children - two with Down syndrome - Heather Avis has learned that it's truly the lucky few who get to live a life like hers, who actually recognize that God's plans are best, even when they seem so radically different from the plans we have for ourselves.

When Heather started her journey into parenthood she never thought it would look like this, never planned to have three adopted children, and certainly never imagined that two of them would have Down syndrome. But like most things God does, once she stepped into the craziness and confusion that comes with the unknown and the unplanned, she realized that they were indeed among the lucky few.

Discover in this book what 70,000+ followers of Heather's hit Instagram account @macymakesmyday already know: the power of faith and family can help us stay strong in the toughest times. This book will also be especially touching to those with adopted family members or children with Down syndrome in their lives.

Heather is the author of The Lucky Few and a popular speaker, podcaster, and Instagrammer. She is a wife to her loving and supportive husband, Josh, and mother to Macyn, Truly, and August. They live in Southern California.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Inspiring! Loved! I LOVED the inspiring story of this family. It really was the reminder that I needed to show that there is good in the world. That seems like such a loaded statement but due to the society that we currently live in, sometimes the goodness can be overshadowed by negativity. This book had me on the verge of tears as well as laughing. It was well-written and encompassed such a wide range of emotions. Honestly, even if readers don't relate to the infertility aspect, I believe many will relate to how life changes in an instant. Plans do not go accordingly. In fact, isn't there a saying about God laughing when we make plans? I believe that it's good to have a direction to work towards but we become so focused on our goals and comparisons that we don't always want to pay attention to God's plans for us. Anyway, I truly loved this story and this family. I can only hope that this story is a light for many others. I also hope that Heather Avis writes another book even though I don't know what it would entail. I would be happy just reading stories of their everyday lives as I really enjoyed her writing style. Definitely recommend!

Editorial Reviews

The Lucky Few gives a glimpse into the remarkableness of one couple who choose a terrifying yes over an uncomfortable no---over and over again. It is an honest and vulnerable account of determination, not only to see God's promises come to pass, but also to seek his best for those whom society so often overlooks. Heather's story calls our attention to the image of God in every person and provides another lens through which to view the world and each person we encounter. By the end, you will see why the Avis family truly are the lucky few---and you just may end up wanting to join their crew as well!
