Down Syndrome – Raising A Child Like Kimmy – Judith E. Mathewson

Posted in Featured Author with tags , on December 9, 2009 by Donnette E Davis

More than a book about a special needs child, this is a story about strength, perseverance, and the unconditional love between a mother and her children. That love brings a joy to both parent and child that is unparalleled.

When Judith Mathewson found out that her premature daughter had Down syndrome, she felt it was an unexpected blessing from God. Though weak and frail, mentally challenged and physically handicapped, Kimmy’s loving smiles and trusting nature brought more into other people’s lives than they could have ever imagined.

Judy shares her inspiring and heartwarming story of raising three young children while suffering the physical and mental abuse of her former husband. Loving each child equally and nurturing them individually set a perfect example for her daughters, Suzanne Miller and Tamara Keene, who played an instrumental part in teaching and assisting Kimmy in the everyday ways of life. Kimmy’s story can teach everyone how to love and give to others unconditionally.

Through her writings, Judy hopes to reach out to parents of special needs children, providing resources, encouragement, and above all, a sense of hope.

Read the true story of where the murder spree of the DC Snipers began.


via GENESIS: The Bullet was Meant for Me, D.C. Sniper Story Untold – Isa Farrington-Nichols.

In October 2002, the people who lived in and around Washington, DC feared for their lives every time they left home. Now, read the true story of where the murder spree of the DC Snipers began.

When John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo murdered 21-year-old Keenya Cook in Tacoma, Washington in early 2002, author Isa Farrington-Nichols found herself very close to this dangerous murderer. Not only was she Keenya’s aunt, but she had also been John and Mildred’s accountant and had later assisted his ex-wife in a custody battle for their children. When Muhammad’s picture appeared on the news along with that of Lee Boyd Malvo as the DC Snipers, the clues to Keenya’s murder began falling into place.

“…Sensational, riveting, thought-provoking, and power-filled, this book answers many questions still uncovered about the DC Snipers. Isa Nichols’ story holds the key to the inner workings of the murderous web of terror created by John Muhammad and John Lee Malvo…She shows her strength, courage and tremendous faith as she walks the lonely road towards her recovery from murder, betrayal isolation, lies, fear, intimidation, blame, and sorrow…It is through this story that you can find her truth and search within for yours.”

-Valerie A. Yarborough, Author, Angel with a Broken Wing: My Journey into Healing
