What People Are Saying

  • ~ E.K.

    "The film is excellent in exposing so many levels of having a mentally ill child. I’m actually in a bit of an emotional daze right now trying to process all that I’m feeling and thinking. But what stands out to me beyond the terrible grief, beyond the joys and hope, beyond the disturbing unknowns and all the living of life in between, is that Love Prevails."

Order The Book

Let Me Have My Son contains collected prayer letters written by Cristóbal Krusen on behalf of his son, Daniel, who was civilly committed to the state psychiatric hospital in Williamsburg, Virginia on his eighteenth birthday in 2001.

What began for Cris as cries of help for his son became words of encouragement to many others 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 also knows what it means to "see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."

"The poignant and powerful cry of a father who refuses to abandon hope when all hope is gone. Krusen inspires with honest transparency."

Robert Whitlow,
Best-Selling Author, The Trial
