Better Than OK Finding Joy As A Special-Needs Parent
Kelly Mantoan wasn’t always able to say these words. As a mother of five children, two with profound disabilities, all her energy and attention was focused on her children’s diagnoses. Drained and struggling, Kelly wondered if she had what it took to be the kind of parent they needed. She craved support as a Catholic parent with special-needs children, but most secular support groups couldn’t help her see and understand God’s plan.
If you can relate to Kelly's story, Better Than OK: Finding Joy as a Special Needs Parent is the hope-filled book you need today. In her down-to-earth way, Kelly shares practical tips and takeaways to shift your focus -- away from the negatives of the diagnosis and toward acceptance, renewed faith, and joy.
Better Than OK is a much-needed resource for any Catholic parent facing the challenges of a special needs family.
