A Miracle at Bates Memorial is the first book in the children's series, The Adventures of Li-Li. Inspired by her daughter, Maleah "Li-Li," author Gin Noon Spaulding provides insight on sensory issues by sharing personal accounts of her daughter's childhood journey with sensory issues and a speech delay.
Little Li-Li is full of life and experiences it differently from others. Trying to communicate when the words won't come out right is very tricky. However, once Li-Li's family becomes knowledgeable of sensory issues, life becomes even richer for Li-Li, as through understanding comes love and respect.
