My Book is Now Available!


From the back cover blurb about my book….

Brian and Kerith had plans for their family. That all changed six weeks into the pregnancy of their second child when Kerith got chicken pox. Fears flooded their lives for months. When she was eight months pregnant, they received more bad news. Their baby was also affected by a completely different virus, cytomegalovirus (CMV). There was a forty percent chance their baby would not survive. Brielle not only survived, but thrived despite cerebral palsy caused by CMV and is now nearly 18 years old.

Brielle and Me is a mother’s story of how they managed life with a daughter with cerebral palsy while navigating through developmental therapy, doctors, school, and relationships with friends and family. This is their journey of hope, determination, love, and faith.


I’m so excited to share that my book is now available for purchase!

  1. I pre-ordered on Amazon and it arrived yesterday! I am having a hard time getting any work done, as I just want to keep reading. A very well-told story … and I don’t say that lightly. It’s definitely worth reading for almost anyone.

    • Thanks, Pam!! So glad you’re enjoying it, despite it not being a “light read.” Once you get past our darker early days, it does lighten up and has a positive, uplifting message and theme overall.

  2. I have to wait 3-6 weeks for it. :(

  6. First, congratulations! The book cover is beautiful and you have already made me cry just by reading the introduction! Wow! I’m only 8 years into my journey with Kyle but just reading your intro about your 18 years with Brielle makes me anticipate all of the great things we’re going to encounter just in the next 10 years with Kyle. I am looking forward to reading your book!
