Learning Surrender through Parenting a Special Needs Child, with Tracy Lane

Do you know what it’s like to let go of your plans and dreams? Tracy Lane was twenty weeks pregnant with the girl she’d been praying for when she learned her daughter had only half a heart. She shares how she learned the beauty of surrender through the challenging journey of loving a special needs child. Her story will inspire you to embrace a life of surrender to Christ, even in difficult circumstances.
