Anyone who grieves the flaws in his or her life needs to read An Unlikely Gift. Lauren Blair tells the story of Kupenda for the Children, a non-profit that serves children with disabilities in Kenya who are considered to be cursed by God, frequently being subjected to practices of child elimination and mistreatment. As the story of the founders of this mission and the children it assists unfolds, it becomes evident that not only our gifts and abilities serve us in life, but also our weaknesses and disabilities. In fact, the combination of these attributes becomes most evident when demonstrated in community with others. The stories that follow highlight just how both aspects of our being, our strengths and our vulnerabilities, are a vital part of fulfilling God's call for our lives and experiencing the dignity that belongs to all of his creation.
