Raising a Child With Cerebral Palsy

Author: Shirley MacPhee

Image of book cover

I wrote this book to illustrate what my husband, daughters, and I accomplished through home care and how Jeffrey, our disabled son benefited from the provision of consistent patience and love.

I also wanted to help other parents of disabled children and their children.

I wrote about our trials and triumphs throughout his nineteen years including, caregivers, education and being parents to Jeffrey.

I would like to make note that my husband and I
certainly realize and understand that not all families are in a posistion to care for their child at home.

Soft cover, 121 pages, with b/w photos

O Child of Mine

O child of mine,
the one I’ve chosen to know
you’re just like an angel
so pure and divine
think of what I’d be missing
if I didn’t have you

You grow with me like a living vine
who greets me each morning
with arms outreached
that seem to say,
‘Help me, mother, for another day.’

Two ears that listen for sounds of praise
And big brown eyes that seem to say
‘Thank you, mother, till the end of time.’
Oh, this is you, child of mine.
