A spiritual and emotional journey from a mother’s perspective, focusing on the ups and downs of raising a "special needs" child. No emotion is left unchartered or is too raw to write about. No question or reaction is off-limits. These are true uncensored passages written in the anguish of despair, the turmoil of uncertainty, and the relief of never-ending love for a child throughout his years. A look at mental illness, adoption and the term "special needs" as it relates to raising a child into his teenage years. This book is a gift if you have open eyes, a companion if you have a heavy heart, and a cry to the world that all children matter, no matter what.
