Cerebral Palsy: A Story: Finding the Calm After the Storm by Ilana Estelle

      Ilana Estelle was born the second of preemie twins. She was born an hour after her sister to be accurate.  In birthing times for twins, an hour is like a lifetime.  At a young age, Ilana knew she wasn't like other children. She wasn't sure why though. Her parents were living in a time when things like Cerebral Palsy was kept hidden or "swept under the rug." Parents acted as though they should be ashamed.  Ms. Estelle began to get some of the answers 46 years later.

    This book is heartbreaking, sweet, informative and necessary. I found Ms. Estelle to be very honest about what she went through as a child.  Her explanations and information is written in an easy to understand way. The information is a little shocking too. This book gives you the whole story, not just bits and pieces. Ms. Estelle shares how she and her family deal with the information and how it affects her life.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's so well written and needed.
