Furnstahl, Shari Rusch. “Introduction / Ch.1 And Then There Was Me.” From Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones: Help and Hope for Special Needs Kids. Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House, 2007. 1-22. Print.
The pages I read this week gave insight of why the author wrote the book, what the book is about, and who the author really is. Shari Furnstahl discovered early on that she was not “normal”. She struggled with learning disorders, severe vision problems, ADHD, and other handicaps. Yet she never gave up, and to this day she has accomplished so much. This chapter was an introduction to her childhood, her life, and the book From Stumbling Blocks to Stepping Stones.
