Today's Miracle Monday is a sweet story by Sister Donna Bogle. Enjoy!
When turning 18, most young people (and their parents) look forward to choosing a college or university, completing senior projects and pictures, going to prom, and the excitement of impending graduation to name a few. Our family isn't like "most," but we've still seen God's great hand in our lives.
Having an autistic son has presented us with many challenges and countless blessings in our “peculiar” (1 Pe. 2:9) path. When our son turned 18, my husband and I began the process of applying for guardianship so that we can continue to be responsible for him. Unless we petition for guardianship, the law says that he can make decisions for himself regarding his health, safety, and all areas of life. Presently, Jacob isn't capable of doing this.
