About the Book

Threads of a Tapestry is a memoir of Laura Miller’s life: living a seemingly idyllic childhood; raising her first-born son with significant special needs, and how the Lord equipped her through this season until his death; and journeying through the triumphs and challenges of adopting five children out of foster care. Included are practical tips for raising children who suffer from depression, autism, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), and other issues adoptive children face. Laura recounts “altar moments” of personal surrender, as when one of her daughters displayed signs of leukemia, and another daughter was critically injured in an auto accident. She reveals how God was at work through each challenge. Laura weaves in poignant vignettes from her family life and her career experiences as a pediatric nurse. This book is written for all and is especially meaningful for a parent of a special-needs child, one in the throes of raising children in foster care or through adoption. This story is raw and real, yet full of hope and encouragement.

About the Author

Laura Miller’s life is all about relationships. Though she highly values her family relationships, especially loving on her children and grandchildren, she can regularly be found at Starbucks sharing coffee and deep conversation with a friend. It’s also been said that she hasn’t met a stranger. You’ll probably agree after reading her story. Now a confirmed Texan, Laura grew up in Aurora, Ohio. Laura is a wife, mother, and grandmother, and counts her nine grandchildren as special treasures. Married to Ken for 37 years, she is raising the last two of her nine children, after launching the others. She and Ken provide marriage coaching through their practice, Marriage Connection. Her life’s journey has taken her through a career in pediatric nursing, and she’s navigated God’s calling through the ups and downs of foster and adoptive parenting. Laura Miller is an emerging author, and blogs at, where she shares how she’s learned to see God in life’s messes, both big and small.
