This book contains collected prayer letters written by Cristóbal Krusen on behalf of his son, Daniel, who has spent the major part of his adult life in psychiatric hospitals in Virginia, Mexico, and Minnesota.

What began for Cris as cries of help for his son became words of encouragement to many others who were going through their own times of trial, words that still today offer hope and healing for the broken-hearted. As you will read in this book, Cris has seen "sore and many troubles" but knows what it means to "see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."

These prayer letters have now also become the inspiration behind the feature-length film Let Me Have My Son. In the semi-fictionalized film version, Cris and Daniel become Ben Whitmore and his son Benny, but the central issues of the film remain the same as that of this book. As it has been said, love completes what hope begins.

And faith will carry us through life's often arduous journey.
