When Jonah had his accident we searched high and low for something to help us explain to him all that was going on. A movie that they had watched over and over was Soul Surfer so he understood what the word amputee meant, but this didn’t make it any easier to explain what was going on and why we had to keep going to doctor’s appointments.
In an effort to explain what happened from the eyes of a 7 year old DeAnna wrote a short children’s book to help with this process. It is currently available on Amazon. We are hopeful that if another family has an accident and they are also searching for resources that this book would be able to help them explain what is going on to their children.
