Reviewer: Diane Bower
The book was wonderful,,As I began to read it I found myself laughing and crying at the same time, and very much anticipating what the next page would say!! It was very inspirational, Not having a child with Downs I never realized how much one goes through, I thank GOD I didn't have to know this personally,,but moreso, I thank GOD that he knows all and puts his 'special' children in the Arms of loving parents to care for, Love, laugh and often times cry with,,I will be looking Forward to seeing more books by this Author!

WOW!!! This book really captures the reality of living your life dedicated to a child with special needs and helps those of us that have no clue understand the incredible strength and commitment that the author and family face! Barbara Williams is a great story teller and writes clearly for her readers to easily understand and visualize Monte's great moments. The warmth and support of her family and friends jumps out of you from the book and in times when there is so much conflict and bad news all around the world, this books bring back light to all of us because it tells a story of extraordinary people that see the best in everything who always continued to get strenght from GOD. I'm 37 years old now, only 2 years older than Barbara when Monte was born and I'm not that sure that I would have been as strong and full of grace as she was from the beginning. God bless all of her family and friends and thank you Barbara for sharing your special life story with us!!!
