      Subject: [Mito] Book Recommendation
       
           I picked up a book to reread that I bought a year or two ago that was
      recommended in this group and am, like the last time, totally engrossed in.
      Asenath wanted me to stay with her in my bedroom all day and so I tried to
      busy myself as much as possible near her until she would once again drift
      off to sleep...  Anyway, the book "Joy in a Foreign Land" (can be purchased
      and read about at www.joyinaforeignland.com) is filled with so much.  It is
      filled with sorrow, joy, and a complete understanding of what we as parents
      of children with disabilities and illnesses deal with.  I have read this
      book twice before and each time it takes me through so many emotions.  I
      have found it helps me deal with my own emotions as well as encouraging me
      to keep pressing on.  This is a real life story of a couple who desire to be
      in missions while dealing with not one, but two children with a genetic
      (possibly metabolic) condition and about how they dealt with the daily
      trials and losses of not only life, but also dealing with the loss of being
      a parent to a healthy child.  Some parts are hard to read, but other parts
      lift my soul and help me process and understand what it means to be a parent
      to our precious children.  I hope some of you are able to check the book out
      and possible buy it.
