profound challenges of raising a son with complex physical and mental disabilities. She

recounts with great suspense her struggles with skeptical doctors, stubborn educators and

life. Our Time To Dance is a gentle, readable and inspiring story of faith, perseverance

and fierce love.”

“Eva Doherty Gremmert's emotional and poignant story about her son's journey with

Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome (LGS) was written from her heart and soul. Caring for a

loved one with LGS, and recalling the countless seizures and hospital visits, is not an easy

thing to do. But Eva's passion for her son is apparent through her writing. This book,

Our Time To Dance, is highly recommended for any parent or caregiver who feels alone

in their LGS journey.”

Christina SanInocencio, Executive Director LGS Foundation

“A triumphant memoir! With unflinching candor and poignant acumen Gremmert

potently captures and conveys the joy and sorrow of mothering a child with a disability.

The achievement of the memoir is its refusal to sentimentalize the mother's very real

struggles in raising her son, while simultaneously challenging normative assumptions

that position disability as a burden. Our Time to Dance is not only a journey to joy but

a maternal rendering of the hero's quest. A book for all mothers to read and rejoice in!”
