The Able Life of Cody Jane
. By Marly Cornell. Lightalight Publications, 2011
In this inspirational book, Marly Cornell tells the story of her exceptional daughter Cody. Although she was born with spina bifida, Cody Jane Ahlburg’s life was not defined by her birth defect. Rather, what was most noteworthy about Cody was the fact that she was able to teach many life lessons to others. Through the examples of her independence and innate set of values that are chronicled in this book, the reader will put to rest any preconceived notions about limitations. The message is instead about going forward and focusing on abilities, not disabilities. The author also shares strategies about survival and having success in life that would be pertinent to anyone dealing with difficult circumstances.
