How to find hope, joy, and community as a special needs mom

As you pour energy, resources, and your very heart into raising a child with special needs, it's common to struggle with feelings of isolation, competition, guilt, and overwhelm. You need hope and help to navigate the emotional reality of your situation from people who understand exactly what you're going through.

In The Other Side of Special, three mothers raising children with physical, medical, mental, and emotional special needs have joined forces and pooled their experience and expertise to provide such a resource. They take a deep dive into the most common emotions you feel, acknowledge the hard things, celebrate the unique joys, and offer encouragement for the journey.

If you're yearning for a companion on what can be a lonely road, The Other Side of Special reminds you that you are not alone, your best is good enough, and even on the hard days, there are blessings to be had.


"For parents who have felt the anguish of raising an out-of-the-box child or one with special needs, this book is a must-read. You will feel seen and held. Highly recommended."--Sally Clarkson, author of many bestselling books and popular podcaster for parenting issues
