Andrew and Rachel Wilson know what it means to live a life they never expected. As the parents of two children with special needs, their story mingles deep pain with deep joy in unexpected places. With raw honesty, they share about the challenges they face on a daily basis—all the while teaching what it means to weep, worship, wait, and hope in the Lord. Offering encouragement rooted in God's Word, this book will help you cling to Jesus and fight for joy when faced with a life you never expected.

What do you do when hard or painful circumstances turn your world upside down, resulting in a life you never expected? Andrew and Rachel Wilson grappled with this question after both of their children were diagnosed with regressive autism. Refreshingly honest, this book explores the highs and lows of raising children with specials needs, reflecting on the broader question of how to cope with suffering of all kinds. Sharing personal stories from their lives and encouragement rooted in the truth of God’s Word, Andrew and Rachel highlight lessons they’ve learned related to fighting for joy and thriving in the midst of trials—ultimately pointing readers to Christ, the One who promises to make all things new.
In this book The Life We Never Expected, you are invited right into the brutally honest world that is the life if an Autism special needs family. Turning each page finding my own thoughts written down right in front of me yet it is not I who has written a single thing. Wearing your heart on your sleeve is the life of a special needs family. Both Andrew and Rachel take you right into their personal experiences but by the only way to make it through, the center of their hope, strength, long suffering and faith, Christ Jesus. Being a parent of a daughter with Autism our family relates in so many ways but most importantly Christ is the center of our lives. I kept finding myself while reading, previous experiences pop into my head throughout this book. Knowing we had been there in a moment just the same and we all made it through each and every bit of it stronger in one way or another. 
Our hope is in the Lord and knowing that "the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. ~ Romans 8:18." Knowing that we are in the dispensation of Grace {Ephesians 3} according to the mystery revealed to Apostle Paul by the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ and when it is over, those who are in Christ will meet the Lord in the air! Nothing this life brings each one of our families will waiver our hope! This book is a great uplifting read for special needs families and for those wanting a peak in the life of strong parents.
