Children's Book Takes Risk, Says Kids With Disabilities Are Just Like Other Kids

Mom pens and publishes children's book for her child, after coming up empty handed and rejected by agents and publishers alike.

So, this mom went looking for a book that her daughter could see herself in. When she couldn't find one, she wrote one. But when she began to pitch it, agents pulled a Gandalf....

So, she did what moms do. She published it herself.
