"I wasn't really sure what to expect" says this blogger about Lonely Girl, Gracious God

Review done by Natalie
Lonely Girl, Gracious God: A Mother’s Story of Autism’s Devastation and God’s Promise of Enduring Love” by Lauri Khodabandehloo 

"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."

When I was asked if I would review this book, Lonely Girl, Gracious God written by Lauri Khodabandehloo, I wasn't really sure what to expect. It's Lauri's thoughts and views as she goes through explaining how everything happened and how God used her daughter's autism to draw her closer to Him and to fully rest and rely on Him. 

While it's not the type of book I normally enjoy reading and I felt that it took an extremely long time to even get to the point of saying that her daughter actually was autistic, I think that if you have a child with autism or love inspirational real life stories, then you will enjoy this one. There is always hope when you rely on God and I feel that this really comes across through this story of Lauri's journey with her daughter.
