    1. A heartfelt read of a mother's journey as a parent of a special needs child. Eichin's son was born profoundly deaf and as a mother, she knew this long before she got the diagnosis that her son was born with Waardenburg syndrome. A mother knows so much more at times than the experts. The book follows Eichin's life covering her son's childhood years until he becomes independent and leaves home. The book is a quick, capturing read and gives an insight into the roller coaster ride this mother goes t [...]


    2. Much has been said and written about motherhood, but not nearly so much about a mother’s heartbreak when she learns that her perfect child is not so perfect after all. A Mother’s Heart by Eichin Chang-Lim is the true story of how one courageous woman copes with such a revelation, when her first-born is pronounced profoundly deaf due to a genetic disorder called Waardenburg syndrome.This book was written to help others who are facing life with a genetically disabled child to understand and de [...]


    3. This book surprised me just a little bit. I guess I was expecting a very sad and angst-ridden story of the difficulties of raising a special needs child. What I got instead was a simple, straightforward account of the highs and lows of dealing with the needs of a child who has some form of disadvantage over the other kids. Eichin Chang-Lim's first child Teddy, was born profoundly deaf and with some vision issues also. Chang-Lim candidly relates the initial shock and disappointment that her long- [...]


    4. When I read Ms Chang-Lim's 2016 release, FLIPPING, I was impressed by the depth of emotion plumbed. So realistic was the novel, that I wondered if, like me, she had personal experience of special needs and disabilities. So, when A MOTHER'S HEART, a non-fiction memoir and self-help book rolled into one, was published, I was curious to learn about the author's background. FLIPPING did such a wonderful job of conveying the frustrations and joys of special needs parenting that I was expecting a lot [...]


    5. A Touching story. I have also experienced this in my life and it's challenging. It's a short story and well written.


    6. An uplifting story of a mother's challenges in raising a special needs child. What I loved about Eichin's writing, is that she shares the experience in a factual and sometimes even humorous way. You won't feel hate or angst, which is common in most memoirs. Being a doctor, her perspective is finding solutions for her child's predicament and making the most out of the situation.If you have a special needs child, or know someone who does, this is a great book to read. It will leave you with good f [...]



    7. "A Mother's Heart" by Eichin Chang-Lim is part-memoir, part-self-help book. This is a difficult balancing act to perform, since such works can come across as mawkish, but the author pulls it off admirably. The work chronicles the author's experiences in bringing up a profoundly deaf son, Teddy. Ms. Chang-Lim is refreshingly candid about her mistakes and heartaches during the course of her journey. She writes feelingly of the family strains and difficult choices over the years - and both the supp [...]

    9. 'A Mother's Heart' by Eichin Chang-Lim is an incredible descriptive of a family's struggle to cope with their son Ted's condition of profound deafness attributed to a little known syndrome known as Waardenburg Syndrome.The narrative is a blend of solid advice and Eichin's memoirs. The trials and tribulations of this remarkable woman can only be guessed at or surmised. Written with clarity and devastating brutal honesty it should bring a tear or two to your eyes did mine.We follow Ted through his [...]
