About the Author
Victoria Nelson was a preschool teacher until her daughter, Moriah, was born with a rare, medically-complex syndrome called CHARGE. Through Moriah, Victoria learned the incredible richness of living life with special needs, and the inspiring determination demonstrated by Moriah and her friends to live life to the fullest, despite the many challenges they faced. After living in and out of hospitals with Moriah, Victoria became an advocate for children and families with different abilities. Victoria began ministering to families in hospitals and sub-acute facilities, worked in the Family Centered Care Department for a well-renowned Children's Hospital in Northern California, and also kept a blog at momentswithmoriah.blogspot.com, which gained a loyal community of lifelong friends.
