Adjusting the Sails

Apr 13, 2023


"How could something so terrible in my eyes, so breaking to my heart, and so devastating to my family be used for good?" Robin remembers feeling as if she were in the middle of a nightmare in the early years of navigating her daughter's medically complex and critical diagnoses. Amidst praying for a miracle, for healing, and for normalcy, Robin realized God's plan for her and her family. 

In this episode, Robin sheds light on the reality of being a parent to a child with special needs. She discusses sacrifices and other challenges that are a part of her "normal" and speaks of her great love and admiration for her daughter, Haylee, who brings immeasurable light and joy to her life and family.
