Meet Alicia. My amazing sister.
At one point in the book the husband, Andrew addressed prayer. How do you pray for a child that has special needs? Do you pray for miraculous healing or just daily needs of sleep and fewer outbursts? Do you accept your plight or believe in a miracle? What do you do when a miracle doesn't come and your prayers go unanswered?
Don't we ALL ask these questions? If you need help truly lamenting your losses while still fighting for joy, read this book.
While the cross these parents carry is not the same as yours (or maybe it is) the underlying questions that we all ask when God doesn't make sense are right there in the pages of this raw heartfelt book.
They never sat down and gave up. They NEVER wallow in self pity. My brothers and I never lacked or felt ignored as they learned to navigate life with a special needs daughter. They managed to meet all of our needs and keep the family together and help us all connect to the joy that is my sister, Alicia.
