“A Miracle Called Christiana”: the story of a special needs child written for the parents of special needs children who feel isolated. “A Miracle Called Christiana” is the creation of published author, Pamela Slayton Jones. Pamela Slayton Jones lives with her family in Grove City, Pennsylvania. She grew up in Farmville, Virginia where she graduated from Prince Edward Academy. She then graduated from Longwood University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. Later in life, she fulfilled her dream of attending James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia when she earned a Master of Education degree in Library Science and Media Services. Before marrying her husband in 1985, Pamela Slayton Jones put her first degree to work in Charlotte County Public Schools in Keysville. After their move to Richmond, Virginia, she taught fourth grade at Luther Memorial School in the city while her husband attended Union Theological Seminary nearby. After another move, she became a stay-at-home mom with their son and, then, their daughter, Christiana, for the next ten years. Once Christiana was enrolled in public school, Pamela became an elementary school librarian in Augusta County Public Schools. The next year, they moved once more and she became a middle school librarian in Halifax County Public Schools in South Boston, Virginia. She is currently the caregiver of her adult daughter Christiana as well as the youth group leader at their present church, Harmony Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Harrisville, Pennsylvania.
“Why would you want to read this book? I feel that God wants me to share our experiences with Christiana with you so that you can see that miracles still happen today. It is my hope that meeting her in the pages of her story will help you see God at work with ordinary people in today’s world.” --Pamela Slayton Jones
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Pamela Slayton Jones’ new book recounts the medical crisis of the author’s daughter in order to help others see the miracles that happen in the darkest of times.
No one who has a special needs child feels understood by those who do not have a special needs child in their lives. Each family’s situation is unique, but all parents of special needs children have felt the isolation of not being understood. Having a special needs child is physically and emotionally isolating. Pamela Slayton Jones hopes that this story will help them see that they are not alone. Trusting in the Heavenly Father and the relationship they have with Him makes all the difference.
“A Miracle Called Christiana” is a story of hope for families with children who have special needs. Author Pamela Slayton Jones never expected to have a child with special needs, but Christiana was an unexpected gift from the Heavenly Father. Christiana is a very special young lady to many in her family and in her community. Her story is not complete, but sharing her life to this point, especially in the wake of her 2008 medical crisis, became her mother’s mission. “A Miracle Called Christiana” fulfills that dream.
