JOHNS CREEK, GA—Linda Hickey and her husband, Grant, had tried everything—from therapy to medication—to help their son Jonny, who had been diagnosed with autism at the age of 2. But nothing seemed to work. “I was definitely angry at God,” recalls Linda. “But I never left Him and I continued to pray, and He continued to listen through my anger, my heartache, my tears and He gave me strength to keep on.”
Then one evening, Linda saw an emaciated pit bull pup named "Xena the Warrior Puppy" on the news. She was instantly drawn to the animal and started praying for her recovery every night. But little did Linda know, Xena would end up being the answer to all her prayers.
A few months later, Linda took Jonny to meet Xena…and what she saw was nothing less than amazing. Watch the whole story below—and see that God had a beautiful plan all along.
