    I wish I had this book eleven months and two days ago. That was the day my five-day old son was diagnosed with a lifelong medical condition. But even now that the intial scare is over, I can still find comfort and wisdom in this book as we consistently find ourselves in hospitals with our baby for multiple tests and adjustments. If you wouldnt buy this book for yourself, you likely know someone who could use it! Just to give you a glimpse of what youll find in these pages, here is how Jolene has divided her meditations:Section One: A Different Dream BeginsDiagnosisSection Two: Stuck in a Bad DreamHospital LifeSection Three: Conflicting DreamsJuggling Two WorldsSection Four: The Unending DreamLong-term Health ConditionsSection Five: The Death of DreamsLosing a ChildSection Six: A Different Dream B3eginsRaising a SurvivorEach meditation is just a few pages long. They begin with a Bible verse or two and then use personal stories from both Jolene and her husbands experiences as well as others Jolene has interviewed. But this isnt just a collection of heart-warming or heart-wrenching stories (although you will probably cry like I did!). Each meditation offers comfort and counsel based on Scriptures and experiences, provides a suggested prayer for the many of us who just dont have the words, and gives a few questions to help readers reflect and apply what weve just read.I highly recommend this book and plan to keep a supply on hand for those I know who receive dreaded diagnoses about their children.

    As a conference speaker to parents, I now have another rich resource to recommend when those who are going through this particular trauma come to me for help. Philo's new book, A Different Dream for My Child, is sensitive, affirming, honest, revealing, educational and an uplifting read. Even though I don't have a child with a chronic illness, I can still apply some of these thoughts and prayers to parenting my two daughters. A Different Dream for My Child would be a powerful tool for the clergy to use when counseling congregation members with a critically ill child. I'd recommend it.
