Summary "Among children with multiple special needs are some whose medical conditions will severely limit their potential lives. Their families struggle to give them the best possible quality of life while knowing that the time they have is limited. In this film four families share the challenges they've experienced in finding and training care assistants, coping with medical staff unfamiliar with their children's rare conditions, meeting the needs of the other children in the family, and, most of all, embracing their children's lives with courage, love, and hope in the midst of terrifying uncertainty about when the end will come"--Original container.
