When LeeAndra Chergey is told that her son, Ryan, is no longer considered normal, she and her family are forced into a new way of handling the outside world. Together, Chergey s family and a team of carefully chosen therapists put in years of hard work, and eventually teach Ryan to speak and express emotions. Through it all, Chergey follows her heart and in the process, she learns that being normal is not nearly as important as providing your child with a life full of joy, love, and acceptance. Tender and candid, Make A Wish For Me is a story of accepting and tackling a disability stigmatized and misunderstood by society."
