They also tells us their honest account about their own marital struggles. The couple got married at a very young age and already expecting a baby. Their first ten years of being together includes Domingo’s alcoholism and abuse, and Irene’s desperate prayers for answers. Then a miracle happened: God delivered Irene’s wife from alcoholism. And as God healed their marriage, Irene and Domingo adopted a little girl. And a new season began for an imperfect couple who were willing to say yes to each other and to God.
Over the past forty-five years, the Garcias have birthed, fostered, or adopted thirty-two children. Their story holds difficult endings as well as promising new beginnings. Above all, their story reminds us what can happen when ordinary people submit to God’s call.
Rich in Love is about a family cemented in hope. About a need to love the orphan. And about a God who never, ever gives up.
