    Nancy Douglas shares her spiritual journey in her new book "Freedom: Healing for Parents of Disabled Children." Disillusionment, frustration, anger, self esteem issues, and pride, all were a part of Nancy's journey to healing. Shortly after giving birth to Danielle, Nancy sensed something was wrong. Earlier guarded medical opinions and uncertainties confirmed. Tests revealed that Dani was born Autistic, deaf, and Failure to Thrive. Nancy details her struggle with acceptance, of the battles with pride, and the of going through the grieving process. I found the chapter dealing with the concept of "goals of grief" enlightening and helpful in areas of grief over loses experienced, other than through death. She honestly discusses the impact of disabled children on marriages, and of her own relationship with her husband, Jimmy. She present insights on the appalling difficulties of social life, and of the effect on other children in the home. Personal anecdotes from her... More > experiences convey a heart warming sense of family love and spiritual growth. Nancy shares her experience with openness, vulnerability, and candor. Her writing is articulate, her story compelling. Nancy tells of her journey in learning to accept Dani's condition as a gift from God. Nancy has moved from a personal rebellion to a freedom in her experience. She continues to learn new lessons in accepting God's purposes, and is now able to share spiritual insights from the what she has learned. Nancy has a ministry of speaking, teaching, and writing. Although Nancy writes from a mother's heart, "Freedom" offers encouragement, transformation, and healing to all. Olive Tree Ministries, 978-0615188225 As Reviewed for Midwest Book Review Richard R.
