Catalyst for THE BIPOLAR EXPRESS: One Christian Woman’s Life Journey in the Company of a Child with Bipolar Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome was a frustrating day with a manic daughter, not my desire to be an author. As my fingers pounded the keyboard with words of hurt, anger and loneliness Grace’s life revealed itself as a story of a mother and daughter that needed to be shared. My husband encouraged me to finish even though it was quite obvious that our story would continue to unfold for years to come. I wrote this book in hopes of educating others on mental disabilities by dropping the cloak of secrecy that brings shame and excuses based on lies rather than truth. Grace offered her writings as an appendix and supported the publication her personal struggles.
