“Half My Life: Special in Many Ways”: a heartfelt celebration of the complexities of life. “Half My Life: Special in Many Ways” is the creation of published author Joseph Lim, a dedicated husband and father who completed his graduate and undergraduate education at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the field of electrical engineering. He currently works as an engineer for a large United States defense contractor and has taught mathematics at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, among other institutions.

Lim shares, “Jordan is a loving, intelligent, and energetic boy who, at a very young age, was diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. As a result, he is significantly limited in communication skills, social development, and academic progress. Additionally, Jordan and his family sometimes have to contend with those who are either not receptive to or not well-informed about special-needs individuals.

“Despite his condition, Jordan’s family loves him unceasingly. Together, they persevere through the challenges that accompany the autism and do all they can to obtain the best services and benefits available for Jordan. As time goes by and the family adjusts to their unique struggles, they are hit with another huge blow. Just prior to reaching adolescence, Jordan is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. All of a sudden, Jordan is dealing with more than just social and developmental issues but also a major physical health scare. Yet amid the devastating news and extremely difficult process overall, the family’s faith remains strong, and Jordan continues to persevere like the champion that he is.

“This memoir Half My Life: Special in Many Ways is a follow on to the initial work entitled Half My Life: The Testimony of a Father and His Special-Needs Child. It is essentially a peek into the lives of a family with a special-needs child, chronicling the experiences and adventures, including the ups and downs, highlights and struggles, triumphs and setbacks, as told from the perspective of one of Jordan’s biggest fans—his dad.

“The author will donate a portion of the proceeds to selected charities related to special needs.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Joseph Lim’s new book will tug at the heartstrings as readers reflect on the life lessons explored within.

Lim offers readers a deeply personal look into key experiences that have challenged and inspired a dedicated father.
