WILMINGTON, NC, April 23, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ — Award winning children’s book author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne’s personal life underlies the message she presents in her inspirational children’s books. Based on her own life, ‘Tails of Sweetbrier’ is a true story of a little girl who dreams of becoming a champion horseback rider. But this child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The doctors say she will never be able to walk.

“I was born with cerebral palsy,” Deanie stated in a recent article. “It only affects my legs, so I’m blessed in that regard. One of the most amazing benefits I had was my parents’ philosophy. They constantly reassured me that I could do anything. Admittedly, certain things would take longer, but they never dwelled on my limitations. This gave me a healthy outlook and the confidence to strive to reach my goals, no matter how lofty. In our family, giving up was never an option. We were taught perseverance is the key to success.”

“This morning I read an article by the parent of a child with cerebral palsy. The author mentioned how “Frustrating” it was for her raising a child with physical limitations. Her child has “mild cerebral palsy” and struggles with simple tasks requiring coordination. I can certainly relate to that opinion. But I’d choose to encourage my child to set goals and work toward them. I’d advise him/her to search for what they love and pursue it. In my experience, it’s amazing what you can accomplish if you try.”
