In this beautifully written book, I am impressed by this mother’s honesty, intelligence and passion for her children. She captured the painful journey that parents of kids with vector induced infections go through in a very real and vivid way. The ups and downs; the different doctors each having only a piece of the puzzle; the poor parents struggling with their intuitive sense that there is more help somewhere but are often left on their own to track down the next step. Sadly, her story and travails are too familiar. It is heartbreaking but these are the stories I hear everyday. This mother and mothers like her are heroes. This book will serve as a gift to many other families that are facing similar struggles. For those that search each day for answers on how to help their dysfunctional, but wonderful children, this book will aid in making many concerned parents feel much less alone.
