Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

In her unpolished honesty, she is as eloquent as Joan Didion on grief in The Year of Magical Thinking, and more profound than Andrew Solomon in Far From the Tree, his examination of parents of children with differences. She is like a friend who opens up her story to you, who makes you think, even if you don’t agree with her.
Muller is always looking for the blessings, even in the mundane. She poses the question that all involved parents ask themselves at some point: “If I’m not Shelly’s mama, then who am I?” She does not shrink from the question of why a profoundly challenged person like her daughter should be cared for. She might have talked more about the toll on the family.
Read this book, and get to know Claire Muller. She will make you ponder what it means to be human and to be alive.
Ms. Muller does a wonderful job of allowing the reader to see what life is like for a parent of a child with special needs, and takes us on a journey of hope, tears, and tenacity.
