About the Book

In a world that idealizes the intellectually and physically gifted, many people with disabilities are relegated to the margins of society. Dave brings this population back to the forefront and highlights the gifts they have to offer us. He shares vulnerably from his journey into the darkness of his own struggle after his daughter was born with Down syndrome and then later developed a seizure disorder. He also writes compellingly of his emergence into a world where those with disabilities become teachers of our souls.
