A mother struggles to keep her family together after her eldest son suffers a brain injury in a car crash. Within months, her youngest son becomes involved with drugs and his sister suffers a physical collapse that puts her in a wheelchair. A moving and inspiring memoir written with emotional honesty, filled with hope and celebration for life's small successes.

Independent Publishing Group
This moving and inspiring memoir tells the story of a single, heart-wrenching year in one family's life in which a son sustains a severe brain injury, a daughter is stricken by a degenerative muscle condition, another son is suspended from school for drug use, and a grandfather passes away. With sensitivity and honesty, the mother recounts the harrowing days of stresses and ceaseless worry within the family and reveals the importance of familial bonds in overcoming tragedy. More than an account of heartache, this story serves as a resource for other families coping with debilitating injuries and unexpected trauma.
