Abstract:

If your child or the child of someone you know struggles with a life-threatening or chronic illness, then you know how all-consuming such circumstances are. There's no such thing as having a "normal life," only a relentless and often lonely roller-coaster of giddy hope, stark fear, blessed victories, and shattering defeats--and constant prayer. Jolene Philo knows how it is because she and her husband have traveled that road with their own son. In A Different Dream for My Child, Jolene shares frank, heartfelt meditations to build your faith and hope. You won't find trite, easy words. You will find rare understanding, refreshing honesty, and a wise spiritual companion to walk with you through the highs and lows that only the parents of chronically ill children can know. - from publisher.
