How Catholic Parents and Their Kids with Special Needs Can Develop a Richer Spiritual Life
It's hard enough for today's parents to raise faith-filled children. But for the parents of kids with special needs, the challenges can be almost overwhelming; these parents' own spirituality may suffer amidst the daily obstacles of raising a child with disabilities, and they may wonder how--or even if--their child can ever experience a meaningful spiritual life.
In Faith, Family, and Children with Special Needs, David Rizzo--whose 12-year-old daughter has autism--offers great hope for parents who want to grow in their own spirituality while helping their children with disabilities experience God in a deeper way.
Throughout the book, Rizzo's abiding though sometimes tested Catholic faith is made clear as he thoughtfully explains everything from the practical, such as how parents can maintain sanity during Mass when the child with special needs becomes disruptive, to the profound, such as how parents can understand God in a way that is relevant to their predicament. At other times, Rizzo's advice is intended to help the child grow in his or her own faith, as when he explains how kids with special needs can participate meaningfully in the Eucharist.
