This is a post that was supposed to be posted some time ago but was somehow lost. I’m glad I found it.
If you’ve read many of my blog posts, you’ve heard about my son, Madison. It’s hard to believe but he turns 21 this month.
Honestly, it has been a long road. And it continues to this day. Madison’s autism and epilepsy means that our journey was not at all what we expected. It challenged us more than we would have believed possible.
And then we hear him laugh. Or spontaneously sing an old hymn.
A few weeks ago, I read Joe and Cindi Ferrini’s post about their son, Joey, turning 37. I found it on the Special Needs Parenting-Key Ministry blog site. In the post, they explain many of the feelings I’ve had over the years.
Often it came to trusting God through a dark time, when i was, or am, at the end of my rope. Not because I wanted to, or saw how it would happen. Sometimes I was like the apostles and had to admit there was no one else.
But I could trust Him because He said I, and we, could. That He always hears and answers, even when we can’t see it.
Read their post here. I really identify with the scriptures and the last few paragraphs.
And thank you for following us over the years. God has some more special plans in store for us.
