Book: Becoming A Super Sibling

Have you ever wondered what it's like to have a sibling who is wonderfully different and needs extra medical care? Get ready to find out! Becoming a Super Sibling brings the reader into the world of a child growing up with a sibling who is wonderfully different. This heartwarming story offers hope and inspiration for families dealing with a challenging diagnosis—and for those who want to lend their support. Written from the perspective of nine-year-old Chloe in kid-friendly language that is easy to understand, big sister Chloe explains facial differences, cleft palate, BAHA/Ponto hearing aids, and more. Chloe's father, Duane, and her younger sister, Ariasha, both have Treacher Collins Syndrome (TCS), which affects the growth of the facial bones. Chloe shares her journey of "becoming a super sibling," including the initial days in the NICU, the endless doctor's appointments, long boring car rides to the children's hospital, as well as the unexpected joy of meeting new friends in waiting rooms . . . And of course, the ways she helps her sister! Chloe hopes her writing will change the lives of everyone who reads this book, and together, we can change the world. Becoming A Super Sibling does more than merely tell a story: It fosters understanding, acceptance, and respect for the differences that make us unique. It presents a narrative of resilience, love, acceptance, and the extraordinary strength of a family in the face of daunting challenges. Our goal is to encourage, inspire, and equip parents, siblings, and families who have embarked on a similar journey with the hopeful message that every child—regardless of their differences—holds immense value and potential.
