What is the book Hopelighting?

Hopelighting is a book by parents for parents, educators, and service providers who work with children with disabilities. Through personal stories, words of encouragement, wisdom, and empathy, we hope this book will provide support and encouragement for parents of children with disabilities so they can see themselves as advocates in the world that surrounds them. Hopelighting gathers twenty-six personal stories that portray the different experiences of mothers and sisters of children with disabilities.

The majority of the authors are mothers of children with disabilities. The bilingual format reflects the place where the book was forged; the border between El Paso, TX and Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico.
