Overview

Philip Mathews is a miracle!

Initial medical reports indicated that he would be born dead, but Philip was born alive. He is now a testimony to all people that God hears and answers prayers.

Philip was born to Susan and Santhosh Mathews in 2000. As a result of their personal experiences with Philip, who was born with Goldenhar's syndrome, Susan and Santhosh founded Love Without Reason® to help children born with craniofacial deformities. The organization soon expanded to include the cause of countless men, women and children who are lured into sex trafficking and child beggary around the world.

Susan's experiences with Philip birthed an inspiration to write about the daily struggles of parents of children with special needs. She speaks about a mother's efforts to balance her faith with the practical realities of life. The book contains several entries/articles about daily struggles of a mother with a special needs child, an inspiration to millions of families who are looking for answers in a world of confusion.

Is God real? Does Faith matter? Is suffering a good thing? Why would a good God allow suffering? Many such questions are answered in the pages of this book. The Bible suggests that suffering is but for a moment, but this suffering is nothing compared to the glory that will be revealed.

The book also highlights major social issues such as abortion, sex trafficking, human trafficking and child beggary. Love Without Reason helps folks in poverty ridden areas who are born with craniofacial deformities such as Cleft Lip, Cleft Palate, Ankylosis and any other cranio deformities by providing the patients with free surgeries. The surgeries are provided free of cost to the patients who cannot afford the cost.

Susan's journey through a world of suffering and pain inspired her to see beyond that world into a life filled with hope and immeasurable joy, the joy that comes by knowing Jesus as Lord and Savior.

Philip has overcome various obstacles to be a wonderful young man with a magnetic personality reaching out to thousands around the world with his message of hope.
