About this book
Real moms and dads willing to share their stories to inspire other families...
Many parents will agree that navigating the roads of parenthood is a challenging task, even at the best of times. However, when you have a child with special needs, the list of considerations and tasks only grows. It begins by learning about the special needs of the child, researching further, locating and accessing effective treatments and resources that conventional parenting doesn’t require. And imperatively, coping with the emotional and physical demands of caring for an individual with special needs.
Going beyond a how-to book, For the Love of Our Children takes the stories and perspectives of 15 families who are all navigating similar paths in their own unique way, creating a profound and relatable roadmap to help our special children live to their fullest potential. Their stories will leave you crying, nodding with understanding, and cultivating gratitude for your own story. Most importantly, this book will be a reminder that you are not alone in your journey.

Sharing your darkest times may inspire others to get through theirs. These are what got me through the tough times over the years and inspire me to share our story.
So proud of Susan Baker (co-author) as she highlights her family's struggles and triumphs in 'For the Love of our Children.' I laughed and cried and saw myself in her words. This is what keeps me moving forward.
Absolutely loved this book! Saw myself in many of the words and emotions expressed. Thanks for publishing.
