When Rhea Mayfield was born, her doctors believed she would never be able to walk, to talk, or even to read. As a baby, when she wasn't crawling at the stage she should have been, the fact she was suffering from a severe learning disability gradually became clear. However, much more than having a disability, Rhea was, and is, a very determined person. As such, she harbors the great dream of becoming a writer; and with uncommon pluck and determination is working hard and striving to achieve that dream. This book is her start. At the same time, Rhea has blossomed into the most loving, caring, and well-intentioned individual you could ever meet. Within the powerful and heartfelt pages of GROWING UP SPECIAL, you will meet this extraordinary woman, and find inspiration in her story of triumph over adversity. In sharing her extraordinary story, it is Rhea's fervent hope that you will enjoy it, and come away with the message that disabilities and adversities can be overcome, and that dreams can become reality.
