It only took three+ months, but I’ve actually finished a book. “The Elephant in the Playroom” was perfect for me: a collection of very short essays written by moms and dads parenting kids with special needs. If you’re feeling alone in your everyday world — not in Blog Land, because there’s great company here — then I highly recommend it. It’s the type of book I looked for when we first started down this path.
Maybe unlike me, you’ll get this book and place it on top of the hopeless pile of unread fluff magazines on your nightstand and reach for it instead. I know when I finally retrieved it from underneath an old People Magazine I was hooked.
