Two for Joy
Subtitle The True Story of one Family's Journey to Happiness with Severely Disabled Twins
By James Melville-Ross
Published by John Blake Publishing Ltd
Autumn 2016 (Sept - Nov)
Author – and father – James Melville-Ross presents the reader with the inspiring story the path himself and his wife, Georgie, have followed as parents to two severely disabled children, and their battle to fight stereotypes and stigmas against disabilities.
Since the twins’ diagnosis, James has become a disability bore. He’s given speeches at Downing Street and at Parliament, written blogs and articles. The more he told the twins’ story, the more he realised what a powerful tool their tale is for righting misconceptions and ignorance about disability.
