My Brother's Keeper is a new book hot off the press. It is a children's book written about our dear friends Keith and Jeanne, from the perspective of their oldest son telling about caring for his handicapped brother.
This family is a constant inspiration to me. When I'm tempted to complain about the challenges of mothering, I imagine the endless doctor appointments, waking up at night to seizures and knowing your child will ever live a normal life and suddenly my load seems very small. Their acceptance and joy in caring for their son amaze me.
This book is one of a series of books about children facing changes in life. For you locals, it is available now at Mattie Lowery's. It should be at Country Drygoods sometime next week. You can order from Vision Publishers and read about the book from the author's perspective.
Christmas is coming...my children will be receiving a new book! How about yours!
