Does God care about Autism?
Kelly Langston knows firsthand the struggles and victories associated with autism--from the time she heard her son's diagnosis and was given little more than a handshake and a brochure to the time she watched her son sing every word in his school musical. Through her experiences--the good and the bad--she discovered a beautiful blessing: God does care about autism. Better yet, he has a unique and marvelous purpose for children with autism--a purpose no less than that of any other child.
More than an “I've been there too” story, Autism's Hidden Blessings highlights God's blueprint for living a life full of joy and potential despite autism. Inside, you'll discover:
-the inheritance of promises God has for you and your exceptional child
-why autism will never limit God from revealing himself to your child
-what to do when you are angry at God and how to move past it
-why love is the greatest therapy of all
-scriptural encouragement to help your family soar above the autism battle
As I'm sure many of you know my eldest son Aiden (age 7) has autism. He is high-functioning and delightful and an all-around great kid. But I must admit that I HAVE questioned why God would allow my innocent baby to have this struggle. It just doesn't seem fair. But then I remember that life is very rarely fair :). When the opportunity came to review this book I was eager to do so.
I found Autism's Hidden Blessings wonderfully encouraging, easy to read and amazingly accurate. There were many times when it would bring tears to my eyes because it was just SO TRUE! I was touched and encouraged through it's pages. Our children are not mistakes and God has a GOOD plan for their lives. This is a wonderful book for any parent, relative, friend, teacher or anyone else with an Autistic child in their life. It really is an incredibly well written book and I am grateful to have read it.
