Here Comes Something Special! Written by a mother who is unabashedly a Christian and an educator, the book you hold in your hand is a memoir, but so much more. Raising Tip Top Kids in A Topsy-Turvy World, is alive with warm-hearted stories and illustrations capturing moments in the life of a large put-together family, a family of choice. It is an instruction manual for young parents, or parents who have children labeled special, as well as for counselors and teachers of children and teenagers. She tells stories of heart-won triumphs, and she shares freely about tragic losses. You'll smile often, and perhaps you'll cry. You may agree or disagree with the principles of parenting she developed raising nine (and MORE!) biological, adopted and foster children. But the one thing you will NOT do is forget this truly amazing story of a family held together by a very special love, commitment, and often with a hint of wit.
