A Memoir of Endurance and Triumph in Raising a Challenging Child

By Maralee Parker

ISBN: 978-1-955656-16-0


Has your life gone as planned, or have there been surprising challenges along the way? This inspiring memoir tells of an adoption that took the Parkers down an unexpected journey as their daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD, then Asperger’s and finally, bipolar disorder. The only way to endure those years was to take life one day at a time and ask God for strength and wisdom. After years of frustration, their prayers were answered in miraculous ways. If you’re in a similar situation, know that a happy ending may be possible for you, too. Do you believe it?
