What if you were told that your newborn child might only have two days, two weeks or two years to live? It would be a real “when God doesn’t make sense” moment that would bring you to ask, “Why me, Lord?” On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson continues his heartfelt conversation with Bob Vander Plaats. He recounts the journey that he and his wife, Darla, went on, raising a baby, then a boy, and finally a young man who was severely disabled and in need of full-time care. No matter the circumstances or obstacles, the Vander Plaats persevered with faith and love, all in an effort to share the “light from Lucas.”
