The essays in this book are written by loving, imperfect, frank parents of disabled children writing on specific aspects.
If you are looking for a how-to, this isn't it.
If you are looking for a serious look at those who have disabled kids, this isn't it.
The book seems good but sort of useless unless you are just looking for a light read on disability culture.
I just read a blog about a man who, upon learning his 2 year old had a terminal illness, contemplated murdering the child and in an ironic twist discovered his wife was thinking the same thing.
Put that essay in this book.
And what is with the offensive title? What was rejected?
"My kid is too retarded for us to eat in public"?
"I gave birth to a freak but since it's taboo to give your child to a circus, we had to keep it"?
