"I simply could not put this book down! It is very well written and makes me feel like I am sitting in Press and Gena's living room talking about their experiences. I love the Chapter Take Aways and the stories from other families. Readers will feel inspired with new direction. I only wish this was available years ago as our family began our journey caring for our son with autism."

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.
