My First Book

Raise Beyond Our Challenges

After I almost died at birth due to the doctor's error, the doctors told my mother I was a vegetable.  Forty-one years later, she cried when I proved them wrong by obtaining a doctorate in Developmental Psychology at the University of Washington.  My book pays homage to people's belief, devotion, and love that raised me beyond my initial diagnosis, as well as my severe physical disability, and helped me become who I was meant to be all along.  Read about our beautiful journey together and learn how powerful believing in someone truly is.
