Hello Randy. You are in good company. Peg Kehret also had polio as a child. If you haven't read it yet, her book Small Steps, is great. :)

Congrats on getting your book. That's exciting news. I am waiting for mine too, but I think I have a few more weeks. I have 2 book signings with my publisher early July so figure it WILL be ready by then!
