From the Center for Disability Empowerment:

Overcoming obstacles to get the best outcome for your child with a disability is about more than lists of tasks to complete; it also requires dealing with the emotions that challenge us. Inspired by their experinces of raising children with disabilities, three African American moms - who are also advocates - share how they deal with both the positive and the difficult emotions involved in the parenting journey. Like candid conversations with a dear friend, each chapter of We Dare To Be Brave explores the emtional journey in an honest way and lights a path for African American moms to succeed as caregivers and advocates. This will be a conversational format with a Q&A to follow.
