When Keith and Brenda first meet and get married, producing a child with special needs was the last thing on their mind. After enduring a very problematic pregnancy, Brenda gives birth to their new son Brett. The events revolving around Brett's birth would set off a chain of events changing all of their lives forever. Devastated after their son is diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of one, Keith and Brenda go into a downward spiral of guilt and blame. Within a few years these emotions would explode late one evening leaving them with only one choice. They decided to have Brett's birth investigated to find out what actually caused his cerebral palsy. It would eventually take several years and a roller coaster ride of events before they finally find out what caused their son's disability.
A revelatory memoir of one woman’s life with disability, depression, acceptance, and ultimately, love. Fran MacIlvey’s life had a difficult path from the moment she came into the world. Her mother, living in the Belgian Congo in the 1960s, had known she was pregnant with a daughter. But she didn’t know she was pregnant with two. By the time the doctors responded, one hour too late, Fran was born with cerebral palsy. Growing up disabled, Fran always felt different. While other children played, she could only watch. She grew up feeling like a frozen spectator, the observer of an unjust world that moved effortlessly around her. Juvenile hurt turned into adult anger, self-hatred, and suicidal depression—until the day when someone saw past her limitations, launching Fran on a journey of introspection, self-acceptance, and love. Exploring Fran’s million and one mistakes and successes on the path to peace and joy, Trapped is a revealing and honest meditation on what it means to live with disabilities—a beacon of hope and a powerful lesson in understanding.
Copper Mountain College's own Cheyenne Bonnell,PHD give's her review of the book as SCARED IN A HOUSE CALLED LOVE, Rose Whittington's touching memoir of her journey from chilhood to maturity, is a remarkable book in several ways. First, it is remarkable that Rose survived her childhood and became the loving, caring, energetic, and determined person that I know her to be today. Her story is remarkable, also, in the way that it is told. Rose allows the story to unfurl from the child's perspective. Readers experience her childhood the way that Rose did herself. The neglect and abuse Rose suffers is just a part of the world in which she is growing up, and because she writes her narrative from that naive and innocent perspective, readers can experience the horror of her childhood. Rose, an open-hearted and ever hopeful child,distinctively protects the abusive adults on whom she depends; their sordid and immoral lives become so normative, so seeminglly normal to her, that it becomes almost impossible for her not to become just like them. And even so, raised in a climate of low self-esteem, an atmosphere saturated with sex, drugs, violence, spousal abuse, lying, infidelity, and thievery, Rose's true and caring nature triumphs. Although she was scared in a house called love, she hopes to prevent it from happening to others by remembering the pain that she felt and telling her story so that others will not have to live through her pain.

“Hilarious and inspiring, Anner has made a life filled with fans, love, and Internet fame—reminding us that disability is no match for dreams.”—People (Book of the Week) “Zach Anner is way more than an inspirational figure for anyone who has ever felt impossibly different: he’s also a great f**king writer.”—Lena Dunham Comedian Zach Anner opens his frank and devilishly funny book, If at Birth You Don't Succeed, with an admission: he botched his own birth. Two months early, underweight and under-prepared for life, he entered the world with cerebral palsy and an uncertain future. So how did this hairless mole-rat of a boy blossom into a viral internet sensation who's hosted two travel shows, impressed Oprah, driven the Mars Rover, and inspired a John Mayer song? (It wasn't "Your Body is a Wonderland.") Zach lives by the mantra: when life gives you wheelchair, make lemonade. Whether recounting a valiant childhood attempt to woo Cindy Crawford, encounters with zealous faith healers, or the time he crapped his pants mere feet from Dr. Phil, Zach shares his fumbles with unflinching honesty and characteristic charm. By his thirtieth birthday, Zach had grown into an adult with a career in entertainment, millions of fans, a loving family, and friends who would literally carry him up mountains. If at Birth You Don't Succeed is a hilariously irreverent and heartfelt memoir about finding your passion and your path even when it's paved with epic misadventure. This is the unlikely but not unlucky story of a man who couldn't safely open a bag of Skittles, but still became a fitness guru with fans around the world. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll fall in love with the Olive Garden all over again, and learn why cerebral palsy is, definitively, "the sexiest of the palsies."
