Afflicted with an incurable neuromuscular disease, he has never walked, never ridden a bicycle, never driven a car. He has never married, never had children, never knelt to pray. But the story of his life is not about the things he has never done or will never do. The story of his life is about reaching our possibilities in spite of our disabilities. It is about living rich, meaningful lives despite trials and tragedies. More important, it is about the undeniable influence and power of a mothers love—a mother who was told to prepare for her sons death, and who, instead, raised him to become a self-sufficient adult.• Steve Mikita is now 53 years old. He has outlived both of his parents.• Approximately 12.6 million (or 18%) of U.S. children under the age of 18 have a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition that requires ongoing medical supervision.• For parents, grandparents, and caregivers of children with disabilities or unique challenges, this book is an uplifting message of hope.
