Series 3: Growing in Faith
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 was gutted and cried out, “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? How are you going to fix this? And if not, how am I going to trust you again?” 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 the Bible for meaning in her devastating circumstance. The result was a phenomenal book, Unbroken Faith: Spiritual Recovery for the Special-Needs Parent. All parents with such questions will benefit from Diane’s experience of how God answered.
