“Extraordinary Blind Man”: a moving story about a blind boy whose name has been changed from Danny to Paul, because just like the Apostle Paul in the Bible, he also faced possible death when his mother abandoned him. “Extraordinary Blind Man” is the creation of published author, Janie Parker, an eighty-seven-year-old avid reader who grew up in Tennessee.
Parker shares, “Amy gave the boy back to Max and left to go buy what he needed. Max took the boy into the kitchen. He made a piece of toast and gave him small bites with some more milk and water. After he was finished eating, he took the boy back to the den and sat on the rocker. He told the little boy that his name would be Paul, like the apostle Paul in the Bible who faced death multiple times and survived— like how the little boy had survived. Max rocked and sang, ‘Jesus loves me,’ and the boy said, ‘Love me.’ The little boy hadn’t talked before, and Max looked at little Paul and said, ‘You can talk; you can talk.’ The boy put his hands on Max’s face, and felt around Max’s neck. Max said, ‘I love you. You are now my son. Don’t ever forget that.’”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Janie Parker’s new book has a main character who does not allow disability and dark past to be hindrances in living life to the fullest, with the help of his loving foster parents.
Paul is an effective representation of people with disabilities—through the narration of his story, the book shows the struggles they face, their met and unmet needs, and how society should treat them. This story also serves as a lesson for those parents who desire to abandon their children, discouraging them from doing so.
