When Karla Akins hoped that her autistic sons could learn to read and function independently, doctors warned her that those expectations would never be met. She set out to prove that, despite those warnings, all things are possible through God.
Thanks to Karla’s determination, faith, and unconditional love–and contrary to the doctors’ predictions–her adult twins are now able to function independently in many ways. They help their dad install pools, do carpentry work, and serve in the church as ushers, sound engineers, and children’s ministry workers.
For parents seeking hope, answers, and peace, Karla leads the way to all three down a path she’s already been.
A parent’s gripping journey of awareness, acceptance, and appreciation of her two boys dealing with significant challenges brought on by autism.Stephen Mark Shore, EdD
