Miracle Monday: A Special Needs Child Aspires to Religious Life

schoolchildren-circleHappy Day after Mother’s Day! I hope you had a great weekend.

The other day I came across this article by Karen Wolff at CatholicMom.com entitled “Perseverance is the Key.”

Karen has a twenty-three year old daughter, Amanda, who has special needs. All her life she has worked hard to learn and grow, and to become independent. She wants more than anything to be a nun — but finds that most communities are not open to receiving a special-needs member.

When you read Amanda’s story, I hope you’ll pray with me that Amanda’s steps will be guided to the special community that needs her most.
