“I laughed. I cried. Anyone with a child who has a mental illness or developmental disability should read this book and learn that they are not alone in the challenges they face.”
“Jan Stewart has written a very important and thoughtful book that will help parents of special needs children in particular (I know, I was one) but would be important for all parents to better understand children with special needs.”
