Theresa Thomas reviews "A Special Mother is Born"

Thank you to my friend Theresa Thomas, co-author with Patti McGuire Armstrong of "Stories for the Homeschool Heart" to which I was a contributor, for your beautifully written review of my book over at The Integrated Catholic Life. 
Here's her opening paragraph,
"A Special Mother is Born, by Leticia Velasquez, is an amazing and moving book for and about “special mothers” – ordinary women called to live to their fullest potential by parenting children with special needs such as autism, Down syndrome, Trisomy 18 and Asperger’s syndrome. The book contains touching personal accounts (and pictures!) of families chosen by God to raise children with developmental disabilities and other special needs. Each story, by a different contributor, is an honest look at challenges faced by these families. Each story shares one mother’s fears, hopes, challenges, joys and eventual strong faith.  The stories are riveting, inspirational and … beautiful."
