“Peggy Lou Morgan has tackled that big question—‘Who will love my child after I am gone?’ She sends a dart through the belief that parents can or should rely on the service system to look after their child. While professionals can be helpful, she reminds us of the critical importance of helping our children to connect with family and the larger community.”

—    David Pitonyak, Ph.D., founder, Imagine, www.dimagine.com

 

“Morgan’s life experience and provocative ideas provide a comprehensive approach to assist parents in achieving the highest quality of life for their child with special needs. While throughout her book she provides practical advice about government benefits and the use of professional services, she remains committed in her belief that the success of any plan to maximize the individual capacities and dreams of a special needs child lies with the parent.”            

—Douglas A. Harrison, estate planning attorney, Portland, Oregon

 

“. . . Peggy gets to the heart of the complexity of the task of planning for the future with compassion, common sense, attention to detail, and deep wisdom.”          

—From the foreword by Dr. Beth Mount, co-inventor, Person-Centered Planning
