Item description for LEARNING TO WALK AGAIN WAS THE 'EASY' PART by Sherri Debbrecht...
Sherri, a popular high school sophomore and newly selected member of her prestigious high school drill team, loses everything in an instant of careless teenage driving. She is left in a coma with little hope of ever walking again. God's Miracles Within these pages Sherri describes her recovery and the miracle of growing up a second time. For Sherri, LEARNING TO WALK AGAIN WAS THE "EASY" PART. Learning to eat, to talk, to think, to make decisions and friends again were battles she faced every day during her recovery. Sherri's journey towards acceptance of her changed self was much more difficult-slow, frustrating, and painful-than her physical recovery. Her loving family, a dedicated psychologist friend, and talented medical and rehabilitative staffs, supported Sherri as she grew up a second time. At the heart of Sherri's healing was her deepening faith and trust in God. This is the story of her transformation from feeling anger at Him for letting the accident happen to her recognition of God's presence in her life and His unconditional love for her. It is this faith that allows Sherri to bury the "old Sherri" and begin a new chapter in her life. This autobiography, written by Sherri from her mother's diary and interviews with those who helped her grow up a second time, is a testimony to the ability of the human spirit to survive and overcome severe physical and mental disability. Individuals, families, and book clubs who read this story will be inspired by Sherri's courage, the commitment of her family, friends and medical providers to her recovery; her rediscovery of God; and her ultimate acceptance of herself.

An inspirational read. May 30, 2007
"Learning to Walk Again was the "Easy" Part" was an amazing story of a teenager who suffered a Tramatic Brain Injury (TBI), spent 42 days in a coma and emerged as an infant who had to re-learn every ordinary skill again. This book is very important in light of these facts: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports there are 1.1 million TBS reported every year. About 400,000 require medical treatment while 235,000 require hospitalization. Every family with a TBI should read this book. Those who have been injured are likely to be motivated by Sherri Debbrecht's story! It shows how families can and do share their burdens and are able to overcome great obstacles.
This book is "must" read for those in search of motivation and inspiration!
