Embracing God’s Purpose for My Special Child, my sister’s bookBy Randell Tiongson on October 24th, 2009
I am so proud of my sister Malu and my niece Clarissa. Just a few weeks after it’s release, my sister’s book “Embracing God’s Purpose for My Special Child has been featured by the newspapers, magazines, radio and more. My sister took many years to finish this book and it’s one book that every parent should read whether or not they have a special child. Below is a description of her book. There is a chapter in the book about the financial challenges of raising a special child.

The book is enriched with testimonies from other parents of special children, plus useful resources and practical advice.
Malu’s hope is infectious. Be inspired by her firm belief that God has a special plan not just for Clarissa, but also for those whose life she touches.
“I have given so many parenting seminars all over the country I’ve lost count as to how many I’ve done so far. But one of the best experiences I had was when I gave a talk to the parents of special children. There is just something special with the love the parents have for “their special gift” from God. But this kind of parenting journey is littered with a lot of triumphs and tragedies along the way. Malu’s book digs deep into the heart. She articulates her feelings and experiences so well it is a must read for all parents. This book warms the heart.” – Francis J. Kong
I believe that God did not give me the special task of mothering Clarissa just so that I should teach her her letters and numbers. He did not design her to learn the ways of the world. God designed our special child to be an instrument to teach us to focus on heavenly things.
