Books by Shirley Riga

Shirley uses her extensive caregiving experience to help other family caregivers.

 

Parenting a chronically-ill child, holding a family together, and taking care of oneself in the process is often an insurmountable task.  As caregivers, you give and give, making life changing decisions for your children.  Often, it's only your will and determination that makes the endless problems survivable.  But you need care too.  When her daughter was born with two liver diseases, Shirley's life was upended into a whirlwind of doctors and hospitals.  In this book, she shares how she learned and applied tools for emotional survival.  It takes courage to find peace.  Shirley gives hope and understanding for other parents and caregivers of special children.
