I read this book a few months ago. Of all the special needs books of read that follow this pattern, this is my favorite. A collection of stories and experiences gathered by mothers and fathers, I felt that the book was overall uplifting. The stories are organized thematically, like many books similar to this. What was unique was a small introduction to each chapter written by a professional (I believe psychologist). He introduces the topic and how it applies to parents of special needs children.
I should have written my thoughts on the book sooner after reading it so I could remember exactly what some of my thoughts were. It's unfortunate that I didn't do that. If I remember correctly, it's worth reading.
