really liked it

It was a story of a career women (35 ish) in England who has her first child that has severe cerebral palsey. Everyone from the doctors to the therapists tell her he will never see, walk, talk etc. The book is about her stuggle and how she never gave up on her child, although for the first 5 years of his life she did give up on herself and her husband. Her child and his treatments became her whole life. The book was written in a poetic form that balances the frusterations of her childs situation with each and every accomplished milestone. Throughout the book, she finds her vision of life and her expectations constantly changing. It was beautiful to watch her eventual acceptance of her new life. It was an easy read that I highly recommend to anyone in the medical field to never presume or give up.
