I asked blogger Kevin what makes Lessons from Matthew and Isaac special, and he wrote, "We are a family that wears our faith on our sleeves and tries to take every opportunity to show how good God is. It is our desire to come alongside families who may be struggling in thier journey of raising a special-needs child with inspiration and encouragement. It's not what happens in our lives, but how we respond that determines the outcome."
