Laced with humor and compassion, A Pair of Miracles is the
heartwarming story of Karla Atkins journey of rearing adopted twin sons,
each diagnosed with autism and fetal alcohol disorder. This is more
than a moving biography from a mom on the front lines, however. It is a
powerful tool, full of practical help for parents, educators, and church
members working with children who have intellectual disabilities,
speech impairments, and other limitations on the autism spectrum. It is
also a challenge to the church to welcome and celebrate all the members
of their congregation, no matter their abilities.
Karla's determination, faith, and unconditional love--and contrary to
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.
