I once was, but I made it through, and now I want to help you do the same.
In my new FREE ebook, There’s Sunshine Behind the Clouds: Surviving the Early Years as a Special Needs Mom, I share my personal insights as the mother of not one, but two children with special needs. When my daughter was born with cerebral palsy, I read everything I could get my hands on about the condition, but struggled with the clinical-speak and dire predictions. I didn’t want to read about all of the bad things that might happen.
I wanted to know I wasn’t alone and that things would get better.
Seven years after my daughter was born with cerebral palsy, my son was born with Down syndrome, and I found that although the two conditions were very different, much of the experience of being a mom to a little one with special needs was universal. Since I never found that book I had searched for, I decided to write one.
There’s Sunshine Behind the Clouds: Surviving the Early Years as a Special Needs Mom is for every mother of a child with special needs who is at the beginning of the journey, struggling to gain her footing on ever-shifting sands. It focuses on how to not only survive the emotional roller coaster of special needs parenting, but enjoy the ride.
“This book was the very first thing that I have read that served to encourage me rather than overwhelm me. I am so grateful for having been able to read it and I really do think that it is a needed and missing piece for moms.” – Julie S.
“I wish I had been given this book in the hospital. It made me laugh, cry, and shake my head agreeing and saying ‘Yup, I have done that.’ I would and will recommend this book to anyone that is new to the “secret society” or as my friend says “the club.” – Kelley Y.
“Definitely a resource I will offer to parents I work with as an Early Intervention Specialist. Those first years are tough and Andi’s work is encouraging and honest from one who has been there, done that–twice!” – Rachel M.
“When I started reading I was already excited to read more. Tastefully written, you could really feel what the author was feeling. It was a pleasure reading.” – Katlyn B.
“Let this be the first book you read when you learn of your child’s diagnosis. It proclaims the first messages that you need to hear – you are not alone; you can find balance in this new and challenging place, there is hope.” – Heather
