Blue Sky July

Posted Oct 04 2009 11:14pm
I just finished reading Blue Sky Julyby Nia Wyn.  Amazing and wonderful!!  This book began as Nia's diary after her son is diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy.  She will stop at nothing to find a cure for her child although she has been told he will "never know her".  This story is about a mother's unconditional love for her child that will never be fully accepted by others.  The book is painfully beautiful and poetic.  Here is an excerpt...

"As we pass the running children who hold up their heads so easily, I realize miracles are so commonplace we barely recognize them anymore, and near the mothers anxiously comparing milestones at the school gate, I see how we live in a time where normal is never enough and we are never full." 

If you have a child with special needs, this book is a must read.  If you don't, read it anyway...then maybe you can better understand the mother of the child in the wheelchair.  You won't regret it.
