Her doctor suggests that it would be a great idea to meet other girls with back braces on so she didn't feel so alone. That is when she met Emma. Hope couldn't tell that Emma had her back brace on which made her think that maybe no one else would notice either. Emma loved wearing her back brace because she said it made her stand straighter and taller
Each family member copes with Alzheimer’s in their own way: denial, grief, acceptance, and avoidance. Michelle Spray leads us through the realities of the “long goodbye,” from unplugging the stove, taking away the car keys, asking for help, and eventually finding a nursing home.
"Written with humor and love, Spray deftly paints a portrait of a young woman facing these challenges with equal measures of grace and despair. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has walked alongside a loved one with Alzheimer’s."
Michelle Spray is an "additional needs" mom living in Connecticut with her husband and their four children. Michelle understands "bravery" not only as a mom of two children who have endured multiple surgeries, procedures, and prodding, but she is also a Scoliosis warrior. Her memoir "Growing Up with Scoliosis" became her first book on her journey as an author. Her second novella is a fictional depiction about her grandmother's journey with Alzheimer's called "Lost Memories Found Hope". Michelle is proud to supply an underlying theme of HOPE in all of her books including "Like Everyone Else", a story about overcoming differences, to teach inclusion and empathy of "additional needs" children in schools. "Brave Kayla" and "Brave Jake" are short stories about being brave at the doctor and are perfect for busy doctor's offices where blood draw is a possibility and a source of anxiety for most children.
