Parents (N=250) of Mexican and Puerto Rican origin and with young children with developmental delays were interviewed concerning the role of religion in their lives. Most parents viewed both church and faith as supportive. Thematic analysis revealed specific religious beliefs and practices parents viewed as supportive and the religious frameworks by which parents interpreted their child's disability.
