As we celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, allow us the privilege of introducing you to Shauna Amick, a mother of a child with Down syndrome and a significant heart defect. In the following video Shauna describes with poignant transparency the emotions experienced by parents of children with disabilities. Her testimony illustrates how God brought her from a place of fear, loneliness, and rejection, to a place of of hope, joy, and great encouragement. It also depicts her family’s journey from living on “the island of disability” to being valued members of an Irresistible Church.
