Item description for Touching the Halo: An Emotional and Spiritual Journey of Parenting a Child with Disabilities. by Rebecca York...
Touching the Halo is a guide to the spiritual and emotional journey of parenting a child with a disability. Rebecca York has used the metaphor of living with an angel and enrolling in The University of Angel Studies to explain the journey and her struggle toward acceptance. The story follows personal upheaval and the steps involved in creating a meaningful lifestyle. Anyone who has experienced a catastrophic event knows that life is permanently altered. Although there have been many self-help books written on the cycles of acceptance (denial, bargaining, grief, anger, acceptance) texts on parenting a child with disabilities usually provide practical tips for managing a disability lifestyle. Ms. York has taken the steps of acceptance deeper. Her search for the answer to the big question, "why?", takes her to the heart of every parent's frustration. Ultimately, she achieves acceptance, not only of her son's disability, but of herself. Her admissions of less than perfect personal qualities are written with soul searing honesty. Without sugar coating reality this book leaves the reader with a sweet appreciation of life.
