information. Again, it was okay, but not what I was hoping it would be.
Perhaps what I believe we need to do is to do books like this for those families who live below the median income in countries across the world. I live in Jamaica and fortunately I can pay to dream some of the new dreams, not all.
The challenges that women with children with disablities who live below the median income are awesome. For those living in developing countries like Jamaica they are moreso.
While the focus should be on dreaming new dreams. They need also be about dreaming but not doing. There should be something here about advocacy and why for those new dreams to happen we must advocate that could have been an emphasis.
This book makes the assumption that you can afford to sleep and to dream, some of our mothers are in a nightmare and they need more on how to move to the zone of celebration than this book gives.
