    This book was recommended to me by another mom who also has a daughter with Aicardi Syndrome. She said it helped her get her life in balance as she tries to be a mom, a nurse, a therapist, and fulfill so many other roles that mothers of special needs children have. She said this book also taught her how to help others to better relate to her life as well. So now that I'm finished with this book, I have to agree. I LOVED it! My first reaction, was "Wow! These authors totally understand my life!" This book was recommended to me by another mom who also has a daughter with Aicardi Syndrome.

These authors totally understand my life!" I loved how great this book was at focusing on the importance of special need moms taking time for themselves and taught ways to get funding for special needs respite care--not an easy thing. This book was also great at helping to explain how to factor in a special needs child in financial planning. This book also is a great resource for how to be a more affective advocate for your child in getting the services and care needed. It was just so great to read a book that is in my "world". I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who has a child with special needs!

    This book helped to change my life. I was feeling bogged down as a stay at home mom with 3 out of 4 of my children needing extra support for developmental issues. I was feeling like I was losing myself. This book helped give me the courage to go back to college to finish my undergrad degree and I'm now 9 months away from earning my masters degree on my way to becoming a mental health therapist! Because I found my voice again at school I've become a much better mom...I like who I've become by fol This book helped to change my life.

    I found this book to be a great source of information and comforting as well. It contains information and advice for families/caregivers to children with developmental or physical conditions on wide-ranging subjects/areas such as taking care of yourself, daily life (time crunch, creating a positive future, legal and financial steps to planning ahead), family issues, and overcoming barriers to quality care. There are also lists of references and resources.

    A must read for parents who have just found out that their child has special needs, I have read this 9 years too late for some stuff but it does give some good information as to some of what is available out there for you and your child.

    This book applies mainly for mothers with autistic children but does attempt to include all special needs children. Good read though.
