Imagine...Amazing me! (published February 2008 by Halo Publishing) is a children's book which has photographs of children from around the United States and Canada engaging in everyday childhood activities, despite having a limb difference! I wrote this book because my daughter was born with a limb difference. I wanted her to see others like herself and for others to see just how amazing children with limb differences are!
