Dealing with special needs children requires special people. It's easy for families to become overwhelmed by the emotional, physical, and spiritual strain of tending to the challenges that accompany these unique circumstances. However, these very obstacles can help parents discover the riches that special needs children bring into their family and community.
As the mother of a child with an unidentified genetic syndrome, author Carolyn Quinonez crafts these prayers into six sections based on the stages of adjustment that families with special needs children experience: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, guilt, and acceptance. These prayers and reflections will bring new light, to parents struggling to live with often challenging realities.
