Caitlin’s Wish – helping children cope with disability

Caitlin's Wish - children's book - image -

Caitlin’s Wish is the story of a young girl whose life is turned upside-down when her father suddenly becomes disabled. Initially saddened by the change her family has to face, Caitlin is visited by Rufus the Robin who helps her to deal with her emotions and focus on what her father can do, rather than dwell on what his disability means he can’t.

Written by Victoria Taylor, the story was inspired by her own experiences as her 2-year-old daughter struggled to deal with the effects of her dad being diagnosed with a rare brain condition, Intracranial Hypertension (IH). Victoria’s hope is that this book will help other children learn to accept disabilities and cope with change.

Not only will this book assist children emotionally, but 25% of the royalties will be going to Crossroads Care and the IH research Foundation as well.

Caitlin’s Wish has been entered into the Wake Up Celebrity Author competition and you can vote for it on their website.
