Parenting a chronically-ill child, holding a family together, and taking care of oneself in the process is often an insurmountable task. As caregivers, you give and give, making life changing decisions for your children. Often, it's only your will and determination that makes the endless problems survivable. But you need care too. When her daughter was born with two liver diseases, Shirley's life was upended into a whirlwind of doctors and hospitals. In this book, she shares how she learned and applied tools for emotional survival. It takes courage to find peace. Shirley gives hope and understanding for other parents and caregivers of special children.

Shirley Riga has taken a situation that is impossible to handle and made it possible to survive. Parents and caregivers of chronically-ill children are living at least two lives: their own plus handling everything for their child. This book provides tools Riga discovered living such a life. She shows how situations would spin out of control, and how she discovered tools to keep her sanity and own health. A remarkable achievement. Well worth reading if you are a parent or caregiver to a chronically-ill child.
