Never. It's a hard word for any parent to hear. He'll never walk. She'll never feed herself. Your lives will never be the same. While the prospect of raising a special needs child can be overwhelming, Jesus Christ makes himself constantly available to the weary and heavy laden.
Steve Viars helps parents of special needs children to be authentic before the Lord about their pain, guiding them in thinking biblically about their challenges and God's promises. Viars shows how accepting Christ's invitation leads parents into a unique adventure of sweet learning and divine rest.
