Special Needs Children in the Family and Church

What are the special needs of the parents and caregivers of special needs children? What do parents need to put into place to provide the best care for their child, the whole family, and themselves? What unspoken spiritual issues plague parents, and how does the gospel address these issues? How can parents trust God during physically, emotionally, and spiritually trying times? How can God bring tri- umph out of what initially seems to be only tragic? How can a church community help in the different stages of the life of a special needs family, both for their good and for the glory of Christ?
