Markola Mclaughlin has completed the new book “A Bright Gift”: a moving work that highlights the impact that those with special needs have on the world.

Mclaughlin writes, “On March 10, 1965, God sent me a beautiful girl. She weighed five pounds and four ounces. There were complications right off the bat. She was in the hospital for a week. They could not get her to eat, and she was losing weight. I asked the doctor to let me bring her home and try, and he said that if she was not doing better after a week, she would be going back. I finally brought her home, and it took an hour to two for her to drink a half ounce of milk. And by the time she got through, it was time to start all over again. It got worse. She was diagnosed with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome. The doctor said that I should put her in a home for the mentally handicapped. There was no way I was going to do that. God gave her to me for a reason, and I was going to carry out what he wanted me to do. The doctor said if I was going to keep her, I should treat her like my son or any other child, which I did.”

Published by Page Publishing, Markola Mclaughlin’s meaningful work encourages readers to learn about a different perspective on life and recognize the effect that those with disabilities have on the people they meet.
