“How do you deal with adversity? You never truly know how you will handle it until you are faced with it!” –Karla Andricks

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Karla Andricks’ new book offers hope in the face of never ending adversity. Karsyn was diagnosed with a rare disease when she was just six weeks old. For eight years, she and her family dealt with never ending trials that tested their faith, stamina, and resilience. When faced with the possibility of an organ transplant, she refused to hear about it due to fear, uncertainty, and the fact that it would mean being stuck with needles again. Things changed drastically when she met Chloe.

A true story of adversity, family, friendship, and faith, this book offers hope and encouragement to all children and families facing challenges. It lets them know they are never alone in their struggles. Through it all, Karsyn realized just how “special” she was to her family, friends, and her God.
