Butterflies and Second Chances

A Mom’s Memoir of Love and Loss

By Annette Hines

Annette and Elizabeth’s powerful story provides hope, solace, and a path forward for parents of special needs children, and it will resonate with families everywhere.

Praise for Butterflies and Second Chances


“Annette’s unique and caring ability to provide her personal story is inspiring and inspirational, told not only as a mother, but also from an advocate for persons with special needs.” 

Hyman Darling, Immediate Past President of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys


“Butterflies and Second Chances gives insight to the life changing events that follow the birth of a child with significant difficulties. Annette shares her unique experiences of raising a child with cognitive and medical challenges to help other families wind their way through a maze of services  to achieve a quality life for themselves and their child.”

—Theresa Varnet, M.S.W., J.D., Co-chair of Special Needs Law Section of NAELA


“Annette has written the book that speaks the thoughts we as mothers of atypical children and atypical births have all had.”

—Karen B. Johnson, JD, LL.M, Madge & Johnson, PC, Immediate Past President of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys
