About the Author

Peggy Connolly is the mother of an intellectually and developmentally-disabled daughter. She writes from her own experiences of anger, denial, fear, acceptance and love that were all part of her search to know and love her adult daughter with all of her perfect imperfection. After spending a lifetime learning to love herself, acceptance of life as it is led her to finally find her voice. As she began advocating for her daughter's right to have choice in where she would work and live, she began to see her daughter's innate wisdom appearing before her. As is common with those who take the time to look beneath the surface, the child became the teacher.
