200/365 Books recommended by relatives or friends of authors: Part 1: The Question of David

51cLA-dxoyL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_When Clare was in Girl Scouts a mother of another Girl Scout mentioned her cousin’s wife’s book because I was a special education teacher and said she’d lend it to me. Honestly, I wasn’t sure I wanted to, but I accepted the book.

The book was written by a woman with cerebral palsy, married to a man with cerebral palsy who’d adopted a child they thought also had cerebral palsy. The book, The Question of David: A Disabled Mother’s Journey Through Adoption, Family and Life, is about adopting David and his first few years. I loved it. I found Denise’s frankness refreshing. The book was written with wit, clarity and wisdom. I’ve since met Denise, her husband Neil and their son David on a number of occasions. Among other things, I’ve discussed accessibility issues with Denise, danced at a bat mitzvah with Neil and gone on a wild ride through the mountains of Nevada with David, his friend and my son.

    • Yes, I imagine that would be as strange as knowing any sort of artist/famous person through the work/celebrity first, then becoming friends… and incredibly cool.
