Reviews - What do customers think about Special Gifts: Women Writers on the Heartache, the Happiness and the Hope of Raising a Special Needs Child?

A must read for moms of special needs kids  Sep 24, 2007
Whether you have a child with special needs or know someone who does, this book will touch you. In these essays moms write about their hopes and dreams as well as frustrations and feelings of inadequacy. As a mother of an ADHD son, I know all too well the isolation and desperation that walks hand-in-hand with a diagnosis of ADHD, Autism, Bipolar Disorder or one of the many other behavioral and emotional disorders. I have often said that if my son had diabetes or cerebral palsy people would feel sympathetic and want to help. But, when my impulsive son yells or hits, no one really cares that he has ADHD. But, these moms do...they get it and it is very cathartic and validating to hear their stories.
For mothers, mothers-to-be, and mothers of the future  Aug 30, 2007
Having no children of my own yet, much less a child with special needs, the essays in this book do a wonderful job of reaching a wide audience. The insight that these women writers provide on their everyday experiences, frustrations, and triumphs will truly win your heart while sharing devastating moments that evoke your deepest sympathies. Each writer has her own unique voice, ranging from touching philosophies on parenting to the darkest corners of a mother's mind that require an unspeakable amount of courage to write. Each essay is a short 5-15 minute read, making it an easy read while you have a few moments (I read 5 essays while getting the oil changed in my car). In short, I highly recommend this book.
an encouraging voice  Aug 27, 2007
This is the kind of book every teacher and family member who knows a special-need kid (and who doesn't?) should read. It is not a how-to or medical manual but rather insightful and heartfelt stories from the people who really know best what living with many challenges can be like.
