You know when you pick up a book and plan to read it and get one to two things out of it....and then you come away with a MILLION!?!!? That is totally this book! Andrew and Rachel Wilson have written The Life We Never Expected, and it is a book I plan to read over and over. This couple KNOWS the struggle of raising not one, but two children with special needs. Their story isn't pretty - they don't sugarcoat - but they are real and give the ultimate advice over and over - you just need to take it to God. I love how the book is arranged - in cycles of a lifetime - and how to navigate them. As a parent to a child with special needs, I cried with them AND I was encouraged. They get it and they point me to Christ - who is ultimately the only One who can give the rest and strength. I would highly recommend this book!
