    A Disabled Faith Recovers

    A Disabled Faith Recovers

    "To be quite honest, I felt like God betrayed us. We just stepped off the mission field and committed ourselves to full-time ministry, and this is what we got?" When Diane Dokko Kim learned that her two-year-old son was autistic, she said her spiritual life went "blue screen," and her faith was gutted. She said she was hit with two diagnoses: her son's and then her own disabled spirit. For the next five years Diane wrestled with God through his Word, searching for meaning in her devastating circumstance. The result was a phenomenal book, Unbroken Faith: Spiritual Recovery for the Special-Needs Parent. Any parent who has experienced trauma and asked the questions: If you're a good God, how could you let this happen? Why us? Why our child? Is this how you're going to treat us?
