If you find yourself at the bedside of a child with multiple handicaps and complex medical needs, you need to read this book. Whether you are a nurse, doctor, parent or family member, health care professional, or a personal ally of an individual who is disabled, you will benefit from reading the stories in the book and the analysis of issues by the editor. It sometimes happens that some people, whether a professional or not, will be tempted to think of such children as better off dead-an extremely dangerous assumption. Illness and suffering do not diminish the value of a person's life, and no one has the right to decide whether or not a person should live or die. This book gives firsthand accounts of the experiences of handicapped children and their families in health care settings. Their experiences vary from doctor to doctor, nurse to nurse, and hospital to hospital. The key difference is that some people held a strong belief that every person's life has intrinsic value and that their lives were sacred. Yet others measured the value of a life according to external factors, such as level of disability, impairments, and level of suffering, whether presumed or real. You can guess which people gave better care, and which children lived longer and better accordingly. In spite of the difficult challenges that handicapped children and their families face as described in these stories, this book is a book of hope. You will be inspired by the courageous tenacity of parents who literally stood at the bedside of their children, often for months, and protected and affirmed the well-being of their child. This is a book about people who made a difference, a difference between life and death.

Retailers Choice Award winner, 2012 From the creators of Fireproof comes an inspiring new story about everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood. While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark. They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift farther and farther away from them. Will they be able to find a way to serve and protect those who are most dear to them? When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God . . . and to their children?

Our children's lives are filled with countless opportunities, both big and small, to make a difference in the world. And sooner or later, they will face adversity when we cannot be there to help them. Perhaps there will be a bully to deal with at school, an offer of drugs, or a life-threatening accident, attack, or illness. But eventually, in some way, life will demand that our children face fear, make choices, and take action. In this groundbreaking guide for parents, Charles Smith shows how to nurture the virtue of everyday courage in children. He explains how courage develops in eight stages from birth to early adolescence. And he provides solid information and practical ideas to help nurture courage at every one of those stages.
