What Readers Have to Say

"Reading this book provides comfort from lonely and isolated feelings that can take hold when serious life problems arise.

Blossom! is a spotlight on the power that attitude holds in shaping how disappointment and uncertainty are coped with, and ultimately, how inner peace can be found.

This book is a gift for every human being who has suffered in the face of bewildering, confusing problems. Nancy Proud Freebery shares with her readers what she has learned."

"Blossom! revealed to me, that while I exercise, pray, and "do it all" as a career woman/mother, I am not doing so mindfully. I have been living life waiting for the latest struggle or problem to end, rather than finding the joy in the process. This is the first time I feel like I can forge a path to wholeness and connect my mind to my body and my spirit.

I thank Nancy for inspiring me and for her honesty."

Sharon Caffrey

"Thank you, Nancy, for reminding us of the peace and joy of balance - and for allowing us to see your soul. Like a light that flickers with different air currents or at times burns steadily like a solid church candle, your description of the path you have taken to achieve balance has given me renewed energy.

Blossom! has shown us the parents' path which we often do not appreciate in its daily struggles.

Thank you for reminding me to slow down and look again."

"Blossom! has been a long time in coming. Finally there is a book from a parent's perspective, from one heart to another. As a therapist, you can give parents ideas and encourage them, but when it comes from another parent of a child with special needs, it means so much more because someone has walked in their shoes. This book is a great tool for parents. It is candid, encouraging and uplifting. It also gives therapists insight into what families go through on a day to day basis. I would recommend this book to both professionals and parents."

"As a psychologist I am particularly grateful for the section on self-care in Blossom! I have worked with "special children" and their families for about twenty-five years. My practice now is quite comprehensive and I deal with a range of life situations. Self-care is critical for all of us. I have information about Nancy's book in my waiting room. I find her message to be both personal and universal. Thanks to Nancy for taking the time to share it to help others."

Lee Anderson, Ph.D.
Licensed Psychologist DE/PA

"Nancy has done an excellent job of telling her family's story in the book Blossom! It is so captivating and a joy to read. She did a wonderful job covering every aspect of what it takes to grow when dealing with sensory issues.

I believe that this book will be a great resource and a comfort to many families. I wish more families could be as dedicated to finding a workable solution to "what life throws at you."

"I wish I had had Blossom! available to me six years ago when I was going through my divorce and the adjustment of trying to raise three children on my own. Although my struggle was very different, I went through a lot of the same emotions. I took many lessons and much inspiration from the book along with the fact that it affirmed lessons it took me years to figure out on my own. I could feel Nancy's pain, fear, struggle and accomplishment. I cried right along with her. . .especially reading the 'Acceptance' chapter. "

"Our class adopted Nancy's "It's Not What Life Throws At You…It's How You Catch It" phrase as our class motto!"
