From a licensed and experienced foster care provider and Certified Nurse Assistant, Jared’s Path is an inspiring real life story about an ordinary mother with an extraordinary love for her special needs child. Ever since Jared was born, author Barbara M. Schuck wanted to share her son’s story to others. Today, primarily written for every family and institution with special needs children, her newly published biography becomes a harbinger of love and hope, peace and joy.

“Every child should have the chance to be happy and have the best quality of life. Every child needs unconditional love,” shares Schuck. “I want to give others hope and encouragement and to stay on a positive path. I have helped other parents with their special child and all though I don’t have all the answers, I have gone through a lot and I hope my experiences will help others.”

The book opens with a most amazing moment—learning of one’s pregnancy and the beginning of taking on a parental role. At the onset, Schuck offers already an inspiring insight that the care pregnant women have for themselves is also caring for the child within. She believes that a woman’s intuition is very powerful indeed.

The story follows Schuck through her pregnancy, the happiness at her son’s birth, the medical challenges that followed, and Jared’s growing up years. She ends with a simple tale with this profound lesson: “People will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

With Jared soon becoming a young man, what better gift and legacy can a mother offer her son than a beautiful account of his challenging, yet awe-inspiring life. Jared’s Path will help readers appreciate the simpler yet better things in life. After all, life is a precious gift that every person has the right to live and enjoy to the fullest.
