I Sit All Amazed by Steve Mikita
The Extraordinary Power of a Mother's Love

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


When Steve Mikita was 18 months old, his parents received the horrifying news that their son would not live to see his second birthday. Afflicted with an incurable neuromuscular disease, he has never walked, never ridden a bicycle, never driven a car. He has never married, never had children, never knelt to pray. But the story of his life is not about the things he has never done or will never do. The story of his life is about reaching our possibilities in spite of our disabilities. It is about living rich, meaningful lives despite trials and tragedies. More important, it is about the undeniable influence and power of a mother’s love—a mother who was told to prepare for her son’s death, and who, instead, raised him to become a self-sufficient adult
