A Mother's Heart: Memoir of a Special Needs Parent


Sometimes, there's an unexpected anguish lurking behind something that we initially perceived as “perfect.” Life is filled with situations like this. It throws us a curveball, and all we can do is find a way to catch it and not drop the ball. Ultimately, we discover the joy, love, and beauty in the midst of distress.


I am writing this book based on my personal experience as the mother of a child rendered profoundly deaf due to a genetic disorder, and as an optometrist who, through my years of practice, had encountered children with various degrees of visual impairment due to congenital disabilities or unforeseen incidents. I am neither a child psychologist nor a family counselor. It is my desire to share my experiences with other mothers raising children in need of special attention, in hopes that they may find inspiration, encouragement, and joy in the process. 

It can be lonely raising a special needs child, 
but you are not alone.   

Read my Story...



Synopsis:

A Mother's Heart: Memoir of a Special Needs Parent by Eichin Chang-Lim
Parenting is a challenging journey, especially when raising a child who requires extra attention. There are days when it feels as if you're trapped in a dark cave with no way out. The lonesomeness and helplessness exhaust you. You may be looking for some words of inspiration to know that you are not alone.

A Mother's Heart is a book for any parent in a similar circumstance. This book is written by a mother raising a special needs son with a genetic disorder. It encapsulates both the elements of a memoir and a self-help book. The author candidly shares her need to make heart-wrenching decisions throughout the journey, including family life and working with the school systems.

This is a book not only helpful for parents with a special needs child, it will also give insights to individuals who may encounter or be involved with parents of special needs children.

Synopsis

AMAZON #1 BESTSELLER - A romantic and uplifting novel.


Life can flip in the blink of an eye, but love and passion will find a way to make it right. 
Join the characters of Flipping as they fight to prove that with enough determination, we can overcome whatever life throws our way.

JonSun and SuAnn are an unlikely couple. But despite their different social backgrounds, they fall in love. From the start, the odds were against them. SuAnn's family has other plans for her future, but their love cannot be dismissed so easily. Defying everything, the couple gets married in secret and moves to California. Good fortune blesses the couple while flipping houses. Their success marred only by JonSun's sudden need for revenge.

The second story is about Christa and her struggles with her disabilities. At a young age, it was discovered that she was profoundly deaf. A cochlear implant gives her a new perspective and she falls in love with Gymnastics. Flipping in the air makes her feel alive, and nothing will stop her from achieving her dream of a gold medal.

These two stories intersect when JonSun and SuAnn's son, Wynson, meets Christa. Through the years, their friendship deepened and turned into something more. But a lot of challenges stand in their way. Christa receives devastating news which could change everything, and Wynson has to deal with his own troubles at home. Can their love and friendship survive these trials? 

What gives this novel depth are the parallel themes running throughout. The characters' struggle with their self-esteem are prevalent throughout the book. This creates a richly layered and more interesting novel as the reader recognizes the threads that weaves the book together.



An Excerpt from A Mother's Heart: Waardenburg Syndrome

I was pregnant with my son, Theodore, (who we call Teddy) during my fourth year of optometry school, and he was born a week after my California State Board of Examination for optometry. I had to travel 400 miles to the University of California in Berkeley for two days of Board examinations. My obstetrician prescribed a medication to prevent me from having contractions and giving birth during the stress of traveling and examinations. 

When it was time for me to bring my child into the world, my labor lasted 24 hours, and Teddy was finally born by C-section. He was over eight pounds, and had ten fingers and ten toes. He was perfect in my eyes... our first born. The euphoric and miraculous feelings overflowed. I held him in my arms, nursed him, barely comprehending that the living life I held in my tummy for nine months was here... sucking, kicking and making noises. Life was perfect. 


His sky-blue eyes were his most noticeable feature at birth. Some people asked us, “So, you put blue opaque contact lenses on your baby?” or “Can an Asian couple, both with dark brown eyes, have a blue-eyed baby?” Others whispered quietly behind our backs... “Who was the mailman?”
