The book was written with the intent of helping newly diagnosed families overcome the daily struggles of raising a special needs child, without losing themselves in the process. The journey is challenging, exhausting, and rewarding. There are days when these parents don’t think they can go on, but they must, they can, and they will.
There is a reference section with websites for further information. The top ten pediatric hospitals are listed by ranking. A section on record keeping is provided to help families keep track of where they are in their own journey.
