You’ll become more aware of God’s passion for you and your child through this handy guide that speaks directly to the unique journey of special needs parenting. These promises are for your comfort. Claim them as your own. Pray them over your family and over your children. Let them guide you into the presence of Jesus and the security that only he can provide.
My Thoughts: I originally requested this book for review from the publisher because I had someone specific in mind to give it to and I’m so glad that I did. The author explores the vast challenges of loving and caring for someone with special needs and does so in a very intimate way. This book offers sections on rejection, joy and everything in-between. It offers hope in the face of what can seem like a daunting and thankless task.
