Let me start this off by saying that I am the kind of person who will make a “to do” list that will include “Plan something spontaneous.” And I see nothing wrong with that.

- For Better or For Worse
- Dr. Laura Marshak, author of Married with Special-Needs Children (co-authored with Fran Prezant)
- Authors counsel couples with special-needs children
