In 2001, Kelly and Michael Lang’s world turned upside down when their daughter, Olivia, experienced a traumatic brain injury after a devastating car crash.
Two decades later, the Lang’s have published a memoir of their parenting journey. Their new book, “The Miracle Child: Traumatic Brain Injury and Me,” is slated for release Aug. 15.
With Olivia’s blessing, the Lang’s share their experiences as parents and individuals with brutal honesty and a roller coaster of emotions: despair and hope, guilt and gratitude.
“I really wanted people to see what the real story was,” Kelly Lang said. “I didn’t want to sugar coat it. I didn’t want it to look like she just woke up and she was fine. That’s not reality. It’s not like on TV. … Those were my true feelings–I didn’t want to hide them.”
