A Great Inspiration for parents of disabled children  Mar 9, 2007
This little book has been my constant companion for many years, since my own daughter was diagnosed with autism. There is an inspirational quotation on every page, coupled with a very brief story from a parent of a child with a disability. The little stories range from comical to heart-breaking - but never sentimental or sappy. All the entries resonate with honest words from other parents who have "been there" through it all. I return to this little book in every possible mood, and it has never failed to help me find comfort and inspiration. I have given away many, many copies over the years. Highly recommended.
again and a again, a funny and moral voice  Nov 22, 2006
Like most of the Moms I know, my courage can sometimes fail me. Or worse, my humor can fail me. I have wholeheartedly recommended Changed by a Child to hundreds of parents, and I have seen a reading of one page bring a roomful of people to tearful silence -- or to animated discussion. This is a useful book, a quiet and wise book. I need to buy another for myself -- the only book besides a cookbook that I ever wore out. And I need to buy more to give away -- because how often can you purchase a little package of genuine kindness to share with others who could really use it?
Not for those who feel good about their child  Sep 14, 2003
This collection of short vignettes might be good for those struggling with grief about their child with a disability,
those that want to know that there are others who feel that way too.
I found the book annoying and upsetting, as I am grateful for my daughter with DS and enjoy her a lot.
I was also disappointed that the author chose to try to write almost entirely about disabilities other than DS(Down Syndrome). Her child had DS so she could have shared more of her own experiences and perhaps given the book a little more warmth.
A book to treasure  Mar 15, 2002
Barbara Gill is a writer, attorney, and disability advocate as well as the mother of a child with Down syndrome. In this book she shares short one or two page vignettes that honestly tell what she has experienced. With titles such as "Awareness", "Sorrow", "Magical Thinking", "Forgiveness", "Pain", she captures the emotions that parents of children with disabilities share. Each reading stands by itself and can be read over and over again. It is a book that you will always keep nearby and will want to read from for years to come.
A Companion...  Jul 16, 2001
I bought this shortly after finding out my baby had severe cerebral palsy, blindess, and mental disabilities from brain damage. It was helpful to read the words of other parents whose children were didabled in various ways, because they knew what they were talking about. I did not feel the same as all of the contributors, but I could see their point of view. Reading some of the contributions, I felt so good knowing that some of these parents felt the same and had the same thoughts I did. At the time, I was deluged with advice and attempts at wisdom from people with healthy normal children. But this book offered me the shared wisdom and strength of parents who really know what it is like.
