Marla Murasko Special Needs Author

As a first time author I had the wonderful opportunity to share my son’s birth story with the world in my book “Jacob’s Journal – My Journey Home”.

“Jacob’s Journal – My Journey Home”


When I first learned that my son was diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (Tetralogy of Fallot) when I was four months pregnant, I was upset and nervous.  It sounded scary and all I could think about was that he would have a scare on his chest.  So I knew that I wanted to document everything.  We were given a lot of information and statistics that scared us.

Being a first-time mom and knowing that there was going to be a lot of medical information told to us, I decided I wanted to keep a journal.

So I kept a journal, documenting all the different procedures, medicines and day-by-day events that lead up to my son’s first surgery at 16 days old.

After we got home and a whole new routine of therapies and doctor visits took place I still kept my journal, well as best I could.

So I decided I wanted to write a book to share our story with other parents who were given the news that their child will have a disability.

This story is unique in the way I wrote it, since I chose to write it as if my son was telling the story. This story will take you on an incredible faith-filled journey as a family enters the world of having a child with special needs.
