Rex is the story written by Cathlene Lewis about her struggles with having a son that has special needs. Right from the beginning he had to have an operation to remove a cyst from his brain. She was told that he was blind. And the hits just kept coming. The beginning of her sons life seemed to be one trial after another. She was told that he was also autistic just a few short months later. How was he to have a normal life. There were many obstacles to overcome. His increasing sensitivity to sound and touch. Being blind and having autism. Refusal to walk and talk. There seemed to be no way that he was going to be able to a normal life.

Rex’s dad brought him a piano for his second birthday. From that point on things changed. He started to come out of his shell. When Cathlene all but gave up, God gradually began to show his glory and power through Rex as he begins to interact more and more with the world around him. He learned to walk, talk and laugh. The piano was the key to unlocking who Rex is. Cathlene began to see how God was working through her son to get to her. To tell her to walk by faith and not by sight.

This story will bring tears to your eyes and joy to your heart as his mother relates how she felt as she received each new puzzle about Rex. His struggles and his triumphs. To see how no matter what God is there in the midst of their lives and that He is bigger than the limitations Rex has had to deal with.
