Lonely Girl, Gracious God

A Mother's Story of Autism's Devastation and God's Promise of Enduring Love

Chicken Soup for the Soul contributor, and Deep River Author Lauri Khodabandehloo takes us on a journey down the broken road that leads us to the truth of God's overwhelming faithfulness, and His promise to never leave us as she shares the special bond between those who are challenged with a developmental disability and the people who love them. 

About the book:

From the moment of her birth, Farema was not like her sisters. She didn't respond normally to sounds or the touch of a hand. She was different. Embrace this mother's deeply personal account of tragedies and triumphs, along with joys and sorrows of raising a child with the devastating disability of autism.

When lives have been turned upside down and we have nothing left to cling to, God offers amazing grace to find encouragement and authentic hope in the face of overwhelming confusion and grief.

"Lonely Girl, Gracious God is a powerful, inspirational memoir. But Lauri Khodabandehloo’s object is not solely to inspire. The birth of a child with autism creates sometimes unbearable strains on families and marriages. Lonely Girl, Gracious God is, above all, a testimonial, about the power of a family’s faith, the need to balance the needs of the autistic child with those of her siblings and parents, and the struggles of a husband and wife, and their resilience, in facing each difficult transition in their daughter’s journey to adulthood. It is a gift to all of us.” 
--Karen Simmons, Co-author, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Children with Special Needs, The Official Autism 101 Manual & Autism Tomorrow, Founder & CEO Autism Today

Author is Available for Interview:

As the awareness of autism grows in our communities, more and more families are impacted by its effects.  Lauri speaks from experience, and shares with others where to find resources, help, and support for those raising a child with autism or other developmental disabilities.
