I read an article in 2012 about a mother who was trying to care for her special needs child and become so frustrated and overwhelmed that she killed her. If she would have had the assistance of federal and state programs to help her as well as an experienced person to give her advice this might not have happened. This gave me the motivation to finish my books so those families struggling to raise these demanding and difficult children will know there are resources and help available that can relieve the stress of everyday living. My heart goes out to all parents who face this tremendous responsibility. You parents are the heroes of today. You trod down a path unknown to you and through tears, disappointments and heartbreaks we tread forward trying to find answers and help. This is 1 of a 3 book set. The second is “Learning from an Angel” which shares the life and hardships of our family as Missy grows up and third “Missy's Medical History” spanning 24 ½ years.

Unless you are raising a special needs child, you do not understand. The daily struggle is real. Try and imagine the work of exhibiting patience, discipline, and love while a child presses into you with challenging behavior day after day. My daughter Sarah is 25. She is non-verbal autistic. When Sarah was first diagnosed, I felt devastated. The fear of the unknown as to what lay ahead was overwhelming. I was forced to travel a road I had never imagined I would be on, and which was often so hard that I could barely breathe. Yet on that road, I met countless wonderful people who helped and supported me and Sarah, many of whom I have interviewed for this book. I would dearly love to have read this book at the beginning of my journey as a mother of a child with special needs. It is a collection of interviews with parents of children with autism, sensory processing disorder, Prader-Willi Syndrome, Down Syndrome, epilepsy, Fragile X, cerebral palsy, and Asperger's Syndrome. Finding people who have traveled further ahead on the same road we are on means that we are not alone. Their experience and the knowledge they have gained can provide a roadmap for us - to shine a light in the darkness of the unknown. This is a book that aims to help those at all stages of the special needs journey. These are true stories from real parents all over the world. These are raw and real stories, woven together with threads of heartbreak and hope, grief and joy, courage and fear, tenacity and persistence, and deep, abiding love.

What is the actual experience of parents who live with and love children with special needs? After the initial shock of becoming a parent, now complicated by being the parent of a child with special needs, as well as having only a confused idea of what may lie ahead how do they find a way forward, to start to build a relationship with their child?The stories that emerge from Parenting A Child with Special Needs are of great passion and, sometimes, pain and above all the courageous dedication needed to bring up a disabled child. The editors, Bernadette Thomas and Cindy Dowling, are parents of disabled children who write with real and practical insight into bringing up a disabled child and the relationship it creates. While Neil Nicoll gives a professional perspective into the issues raised.Parents often come to see their children as a "gift", and the dominant note struck is of the intensity of the relationships that develop between these parents and their children, relationships that are the most fulfilling part of both their lives.They tell it as it is, the joy and the pain, and these are stories that all parents will recognise.
