The dream of parenting can come with blessings and challenges, and author Lynda Drake and her husband Fred have experienced this firsthand with their three children: Alli with ADD and dyslexia, son Alex with Down syndrome and his twin sister Katy with life-threatening allergies. Lynda shares her experiences and advice in her new parenting book, The Power of Imperfect Parents, to encourage parents of children with special needs that you're not alone and that every child is special and unique. As she talks about meaningful times teaching and learning from her children, Lynda dispenses the importance of changing parenting expectations, loving children unconditionally, and finding purpose in failure. In being an advocate for those with special needs through her non-profit organization, Lynda conveys the knowledge that with the help of others and loved ones, your family can embrace a different normal. There's no perfect parent; just perfect love shared.
