"As a parent of a disabled child, I find this book to be an immensely valuable resource. The Barnhills offer practical help for navigating the emotional and relational pitfalls common to those in our situation. Their advice is concrete, realistic, and encouraging."

    A great resource for parents

    I thought it was a great resource for any parent, not just for parents who have a child with a disability. You have done so much to help families who are striving to provide the best opportunities for their children. I thought the book was organized in a way that allowed the reader to reflect on important concepts. The art work was very creative. I especially liked the way each chapter had summary points at the end of the chapters. This book reaffirmed the feelings that I have had in recognizing the amazing job that God has done in many families who have loved ones with disabilities. I frequently stand in amazement of the strength I see in many parents. I like how you have always pointed out how the parents are the experts. Throughout the book I found a consistent theme for parents to reach out to God and friends.
