WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH

Here’s a tried and true saying:

“WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING!”

This has never been more true than in the story entitled “PETER, THE POLE AND THE KNOB.”   The book is based upon the true life condition of a child patient in my practice in Iowa.  But the story is fictionalized.

If you think children are NOT this resilient and are NOT this brave, you need to rethink your beliefs.  Little Peter is devastated, both physically and emotionally and yet, he is brave enough to reach out and accept a hand up (not a handout).  His little sister just dares Peter to re-engage in life.  Little Allie simply does not take “NO” as an option.

These children are loveable and they are believable.  I’d love to hear your comments as the children make their way to a new kind of life.  With adult guidance and a support system of love and determination, children learn that anything is possible.

The book is available in both paperback and Kindle through Amazon.com  Check out the bargains!!!
