Lonely Girl, Gracious God - Book Review!

Lonely Girl, Gracious God by Lauri Khodabandehloo

About The Book:
From the moment of her birth, Farema was not like her sisters. She didn't respond normally to sounds or the touch of a hand. She was different. Embrace this mother's deeply personal account of tragedies and triumphs, along with joys and sorrows of raising a child with the devastating disability of autism. When lives have been turned upside down and we have nothing left to cling to, God offers amazing grace to find encouragement and authentic hope in the face of overwhelming confusion and grief. Chicken Soup for the Soul contributor Lauri Khodabandehloo takes us on a journey down the broken road that leads us to the truth of God's overwhelming faithfulness, and His promise to never leave us as she shares the special bond between those who are challenged with a developmental disability and the people who love them.

My Thoughts:
This was a very touching book. I was glad to read about Autism in a girl, because you mostly only hear about it in boys. The story is very personal, and you can tell by the way she writes that the author has been through the ringer emotionally. I was exhausted for her in all the work and research she had put in to caring for her daughter and finding out all she could about her daughter's condition. It is a hard story to share, but I am glad this family did.

About The Author:
Works with those with developmental disabilities. Serves on the board of SAIL supporting semi-independent living for adults with developmental disabilities.

I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Bring It On Communications. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
