Powerful, effective tools for raising kids
“A parent’s gripping journey of aware-
ness, acceptance, and appreciation of her
two boys dealing with significant challen-
ges brought on by autism.”
--Stephen Mark Shore, EdD
A Pair of Miracles ( www.kregel.com/
biography/a-pair-of-miracles) is a powerful
spiritual tool kit for any parent of a child
with autism. Laced with humor and com-
passion, it is the heartwarming story of
Karla Akins’s journey rearing adopted twin
sons, each diagnosed with autism and fetal
When Karla hoped that her autistic sons
could learn to read and function independently, she was warned that those expectations would never be met. She set out
to prove that, despite those warnings, all
things are possible through God.
Thanks to Karla’s determination, faith,
and unconditional love—and contrary to
the doctors’ predictions—her adult twins
are now able to function independently
in many ways. They help their dad install
pools, do carpentry work, and serve in the
church as ushers, sound engineers, and
children’s ministry workers.
Karla shares her triumphs and mistakes
as she learned to reclaim her faith, find
healthy ways to manage anger toward God,
build productive relationships with doctors
and education professionals, navigate the
many schooling and therapy choices, and
envision what an inclusive church looks
For parents seeking hope, answers, and
peace, Karla leads the way to all three.
