My Baby Rides the Short Bus: The Unabashedly of Raising Kids with Disabilities
344 pp., 9x6, perfect bound
An anthology written by counter-cultural parents of children with "special needs." Featuring an essay by none other than your faithful proprietress!
From the publisher:
"In lives where there is a new diagnosis or drama every day, the stories
in this collection provide parents of "special needs" kids with a
welcome chuckle, a rock to stand on, and a moment of reality held far
enough from the heart to see clearly. Featuring works by "alternative"
parents who have attempted to move away from mainstream thought--or
remove its influence altogether--this anthology, taken as a whole,
carefully considers the implications of parenting while raising
children with disabilities.
From professional writers to novice storytellers including Robert
Rummel-Hudson, Ayun Halliday, and Kerry Cohen, this assortment of
authentic, shared experiences from parents at the fringe of the fringes
is a partial antidote to the stories that misrepresent, ridicule, and
objectify disabled kids and their parents."
