A mother knows her child. She knows what every twitch, every blink, and every quiver of her lips means. She knows when her child is angry or sad, and when her child is ill.
The Fileccias were an ordinary, everyday family; a Dad, a Mom, beautiful kids and even a dog...until 2003. That's when God chose them to begin an extraordinary life journey. Trusting in their faith, Rusty and Nancy packed up their three children and traveled to China to adopt Xing Dan Nang (Candace), an eight-year-old sight-impaired girl. Little did they know this trip would lead them through the deepest valleys a family could ever experience.
The challenge of teaching a blind child paled in significance to the diagnosis their precious daughter received just three short years after her adoption. For the next three years life would became a roller coaster ride of deep despair, desperate hope, and searching for answers.
Based on Nancy’s heartfelt journal entries of their journey, the story of Candace Kate unfolds, shining a light on God’s purpose to give this little girl a “forever family” and showing how she lived a full life in only thirteen years.
Life is short; no one is guaranteed eighty years. But during our time on earth we can inspire, love, and show God’s undying love for us, before He calls us home.
