The BookViral Review:

A joyful and uplifting read, ‘Raising Nathan against all odds: Discovering the Blessings, Joy and Purpose in Raising a Child with Disabilities’ is one Mother’s heartfelt account of her experience. Writing with a transparency and honesty rarely seen in this type of biography, Christine Staple-Ebanks immerses her reader not only into her own world, but also that of wider responsibility, and the ongoing struggle as an advocate in providing a rightful standard of living to those with disabilities. 

So often the experiences of both the individual with a disability and their carers are seen as ‘other’, with their reality observed but rarely understood and appreciated. Staple-Ebank’s work both in writing and working with her own foundation has highlighted the inadequacies in both the medical and social perspective of disability, supporting a long overdue move to inclusion and integration.

Without shying away from the heartache and exhaustion experienced by herself, her husband, and the wider impact felt by her other children, Staple-Ebanks captures the pure joy of her journey with Nathan throughout his childhood. Moving passages of sudden realisation and revelation convey just how much her son contributes to the family unit, and how the family unit has grown in their spiritual faith and strength as a result of supporting him. 

Practical ‘takeaways’ at the conclusion of each chapter provide valuable lessons for others in similar situations; their unrelentingly positive message being a support for those who find themselves at sea in this challenging situation, pointing the way forward to a place of acceptance and joy through support mechanisms such as knowledge, communication, and a deep faith in God and his support. 

With her work stretching across continents and motivating both society as a whole and the individual, Staple-Ebanks shines a beacon on disability as a condition to be embraced and supported rather than hidden, bringing to light the serious issue of the rights and the voice of such individuals as the crafters of their own lives and destiny. Indeed, the most moving passages of her biography are those which embrace Nathan’s personality, his likes and dislikes, his joy at experiencing life amongst ‘A’ typical individuals-and the whole family’s continued support of him as he moves into adulthood. 

An inspiring, read, Raising Nathan against all odds is highly recommended.
