Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and experience through this publication. The book is a real "Treasure". It's not only a very difficult task to raise and nurture a challenged child but, the worry and realistic anxieties that follow through life are even greater.
This book gave my husband and me ideas and comfort that we do have many options for provision for our daughter with minimal burden on other family members.
With careful planning and the info from your book, the future looks like it will be fine for her and the rest of our family when we are gone. We learned of the book through our estate planner which I'll be forever grateful.
I'm passing on what we have learned to another family member in a similar situation. I will be ordering another copy.
