I think it is incredibly selfless and brave for parents to look after children with special needs. I find the story of Kate extremely moving and motivational. I have often wondered what life would be like if I had children that were emotionally or physically handicapped. I'm not entirely sure what life would be like but I know that I would be helped by knowing that there was other who shared my experiences and understood my struggles.

We often forget that not only the child but the caregivers are also affected in the way that permeates every part of their life. The dynamics in a marriage change. If you have children that don't have a disability, they still have to fit their life around the child with the disability. I'm glad Kate addressed these issues and spoke about how she was able to deal with them. I hope this book helps others struggling with similar situations find hope.
