An Inspiring Book in Azusa

Pearls of Life is the realization of a lifelong dream, to explain in poetry format how I was able to change the worst thing that happened in my life and my family's life: the delivery room accidental mishap, causing my second son, Hrag, to be born severely handicapped and brain dead, and his corresponding extremely difficult and seemingly meaningless thirteen years life, to a life-altering, boundless, and heavenly, nurturing experience. That is the best thing that I have ever done, or will ever do, for the rest of my life.
For all those individuals and families who are going through a deep dark valley in their life, my message is to hang on to your precious life, take one day at a time and do not succumb to emotional despair. Have hope, faith, and love and see how you will discover new uncharted meaning and thrill in years to come. For God is a good God. He only has good plans for each of us, and He is the Creator of Love. He is boundless and precious. It is up to us to see it, to feel it, to show it, and then share that love freely with others, with no expectations.
