Girl Going Into a Van

Parents and Caregivers

Finding out a loved one has a disability or chronic health challenge can produce many emotions. Feelings such as confusion, anger, disappointment, frustration, and sadness toward God or others are normal and can be part of the process of coming to an understanding of what is happening. You may find yourself exhausted emotionally as well as physically. Although God has not revealed all things to us now, you can trust that He is a loving God and cares for you and your loved one. Draw close to Heavenly Father, and allow His Spirit to comfort and instruct you.

God has a plan for your family’s happiness here as well as in the eternities. Although our Father in Heaven may not remove all your challenges now, He can ease your burdens and give you the strength to bear them, just as He did with the people of Alma (see Mosiah 24:10–15).
