Stephanie's Story - by Kathleen Wermuth

Raising a child with multiple disabilities is an overwhelming ordeal, let alone the physical and emotional strain that comes with it. Stephanie's Story is the personal narrative of one parent's emotional journey in caring and loving for her daughter, born with a rare genetic birth defect-22Q13 Deletion Syndrome-which has left her unable to walk or speak, and medically fragile.  Beyond the heartaches, the hardships, and the handicap, they realize that they are truly blessed by a very special child. ISBN: 1-4137-2715-8
