Where Joy & Sorrow Co-exist

Today I have the privilege interviewing a friend  of mine Andrea Foster, where you’ll hear phrases like CHRONIC SORROW and THRIVING JOY!

Andrea is a mom of four teenagers – Russell, Lily, Annie & Audrey. Her two youngest, Annie and Audrey, are twins who were diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex at five months old. Andrea and her husband Kirk have experienced deep grief – at the loss of dreams and all that they expected their lives to be. They face daily challenges as they raise children with special needs as well as their two typical children. Having two children with profound intellectual disabilities has been challenging, rewarding and heart breaking for Andrea and Kirk, and at times they have felt unequipped to handle all that is required of them. Still, they continue to find strength in the Lord – through prayer and in His Word and through being part of the Church Body.

“They have been enabled to not only survive, but thrive in the life they have been given and know true joy in their circumstance.”
