We need to defend the quality of our child's future. Special children never asked to be born with limitations.

Background Information

As each child with a disability is diagnosed, there is a family who enters into a dark place full of fear, anger and a constant feeling of empowerment that only another parent of a special-needs child could possibly comprehend. Danielle and her family know of this place all too well. In 1999, Danielle and her husband, Dan, watched as the world that they knew of quickly crumbled down around them. After a year of testing, Joseph, their second son, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, autism and white matter disease. However, Danielle had already begun to fall into a severe depression, distancing herself from her husband and had surrendered to her own self-blame. Realizing the road of self-destruction that she had taken, she began to search for someone or something to help her find the strength she needed. Then she found the only person who could give her the guidance that she was searching for…her own son Joseph. Danielle is now sharing her story, hoping to help other parents of special-needs children find that strength and the hero that lies within themselves.

Additional Information

After three years my autobiography was released and is available for purchase. Titled "Growing with Joe", this book was written to help parents see that they are not alone and how desperately their child needs them to become their voice. However, many parents fail to find the strength to do so. I wrote this book to tell the story of how I overcame many of the trials that raising and child with autism and cerebral plasy has presented to me. From self blame and depression, to becoming involved in his school and volunteering my time to teach other children about special needs children. I wanted to show the parents that their child was a child first and not the disability. Please stop by my website or blog and read an excerpt. And don't forget to sign my guessbook. I love to hear from my readers.
