Emmanuel's Dream by Laurie Ann Thompson
The true story of a very determined Ghanaian boy who was born with one healthy leg and one misshapen leg. For his culture and community, his kind of handicap was seen by many as a sign of a curse, and these children were often left to die. But Emmanuel’s mother was a woman of faith, and she named her boy, “Emmanuel—God is with us.” Emmanuel went on to become a blessing, not only to his mother and siblings, but to his entire country. This is Emmanuel’s remarkable and heroic story.
