I was 26 years old, sitting in my doctor’s examining room, when he told me I was pregnant. Again. With my third child in three years. I cried.
I went home and told my husband who assured me that everything would be okay. But I silently disagreed and thought to myself, “No, everything will not be okay”. I do not know exactly why that thought came to my mind when it did.
It wasn’t too long after that day that I realized why I felt the way I did. My life would evolve into a distinctively exceptional journey, to say the least. My life would be far from what most people would consider to be “okay”.

How inspired I was during and after reading this book and have so much more insight into the challenges but also triumphs in raising a child with disabilities. What is even more amazing is when the parents can have a wonderful relationship that grows out of love, trust and perseverance, (quote by yours truly, Monica the Taptutor)!
