Readable, fast-paced, well written, and instructive-this book provides fascinating and important insight into the brilliant leadership, hard work, and innovative education program development of one individual ...Donald Bailey" Madeleine Will Vice President of Public Policy National Down Syndrome Society"Donald Bailey demonstrates the power parents have to create new and better options for their children with intellectual disabilities and makes it clear that the first step in his journey was listening to his son's dreams and believing that they were possible. In recounting his personal journey of hope, disappointment, and ultimately success, Donald demonstrates that all parents have the power to make change happen. I hope that every person, parent, teacher, and policymaker who reads this book sees in it a reflection of their own potential to make the dream of college into reality.

It seems as though every parent I talk to feels as if they are the only one on this educational journey. With a real-life happy ending, this book provides insight into one family's educational journey and the impact that the journey will have on generations to come for students with disabilities."
