MEADVILLE, Pa., May 02, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "My Name Is John: The Story of a Courageous Man": an inspiring and tender memoir of a permanently disabled man who was a blessing to his foster family. "My Name Is John: The Story of a Courageous Man" is the creation of published author Annemarie Hobble, a German-born American citizen and retired nurse who lives in Plano, Texas, with her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
Annemarie shares, "'His mother had a mental breakdown, now known as postpartum psychosis when he was four weeks old. She severely injured the baby by beating him on the head, breaking his ribs, throwing him against a wall. She could not remember the abuse. She was hospitalized and institutionalized. His father left the family and washed his hands of the abuse. Simon stayed in the hospital for several weeks with severe convulsions and difficulty nursing. Nobody wanted the responsibility to care for a handicapped baby, who had little chance to survive or live a normal life. His black foster mother called him Johnny. We will keep that name. He is our Johnny from now on!'"
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Annemarie Hobble's new book is an unforgettable and deeply moving memoir of a man who refuses to feel sorry for himself for the cards he had been dealt in life, a man whose sense of hope and trust in God sets him apart as a rich blessing than a burden to the family who had been moved to adopt him as a child.
Intimately spiritual and uplifting, John's story is one of hope and love that turns the a life of the bleakest and most difficult challenges into a life of testimony and inspiration to others.
