More Than a Memory-The Candace Kate Story
Please note- This is NOT a unit study. This is an instant download book. (pdf)
The Fileccias did not consider themselves anything special. They were just an ordinary family with a dad at work and a mom who stayed at home to raise and homeschool the children. Yet, in 2003 God chose them to begin an extraordinary life journey. Trusting in their faith, Rusty and Nancy Fileccia packed up their three children and traveled to China to adopt Xing Dan Nang (Candace), an eight year old girl with special needs. Little did they know this trip would lead them through the deepest valleys a family could ever experience.
The challenge of teaching a child who was blind became insignificant when Candace was diagnosed with a fatal brain disease in 2006. The next three years became a roller coaster of deep despair, desperate hope, and searching for answers.
Based on Nancy's heartfelt journal entries, the story of Candace Kate unfolds, shining a light on God's purpose for giving this little girl a "forever family" only to be taken away a few short years later.
The Feliccia family prays that Candace will always remain "More Than a Memory."
