Join us in April for a very special webinar with three amazing ladies! Salina Miller, Patricia Parker and Charisse (Nikki) Montgomery are the authors of a new book, “We Dare Be Brave: African American Moms and the emotional journey of raising children with disabilities.” We will interview them about parenting children with disabilities on Sunday, April 25, 2021 at 4:00pm EST via Zoom!
Salina Miller is a friend of the Autism Faith Network. We featured her for a Special Needs Advocate Highlight back in August 2020. We are so excited for her and her fellow co-authors!
Quotes from We Dare Be Brave
Here are some thought-provoking quotes from each author of the book:
“But it’s important to know that with or without healing, your child’s life is a miracle in itself. It’s important for our children to feel valued as they are and not feel as if their parents are wishing and waiting for them to be something different.” – Charisse “Nikki” Montgomery
“It’s important to remember that while we sacrifice for love, we also have to create balance. We cannot sacrifice our family’s wellbeing to meet the needs of one child; the whole family system needs to remain strong. If you are spending many hours each week on therapies but neglecting your marriage, your other children or yourself, you will need to reevaluate that balance.” – Salina Miller
“Self-care encompasses your mind, body, soul, and spirit and has to be integrated into your daily activities.” – Patricia Parker

Just to know that there of family that will express how is it to live with children with a disability is so good to hear their facts and how you deal with your kids that don’t have a disability. I am a grandmother trying to raise a grand son with a disability.
