The Child Behind the Glass Door -- Hannah's Story reveals both the tremendous challenges and deep joys of raising a child with a developmental disability. As an infant, Hannah would not respond when someone walked into the room. When other babies were walking, she still crawled. At two years old, Hannah could not speak a word. She lived in her own little world, one of constant tantrums that kept her family awake at night for weeks on end.

Frustration and sleepless nights turned into desperation. But Hannah's mother prayed to God and clearly heard Him say in her heart, "Hannah has been made in my image. You need to look at her like I see her."

Through the support of a team of care-workers and other professionals, Hannah made progress. Her family discovered she could count. And then one day, she spoke – in perfect, clear English. Soon, she was using the family computer to study Dinosaurs.

Hannah's Story is an inspiring account of how one dedicated family has learned to raise a child diagnosed with PDD, Pervasive Developmental Disorder, a form of autism. Viewers will be touched by the story's revealing truth – that a family's committed, God-centered love can help us survive even the most challenging valleys of life. Fullscreen.
