RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- A new voice for disability and relationships has emerged with the release of Ink in the Wheels: Stories to Make Love Roll www.inkinthewheels.com by S. Barton and Megan Cutter. This captivating story discusses the often-taboo topic of disability and inter-ability couples and brings awareness to this sensitive topic. It depicts the unforgettable journey of an inter-ability married couple as they explore the courage and perseverance necessary to thrive in a relationship.
Married for eight years, Barton and Megan Cutter work to empower individuals of all abilities to live fully engaged lives. In this latest book, they share the skills that they teach through personal coaching, leadership training and speaking engagements. Among the many topics they speak on are disability awareness, creating healthy relationships, self-defense for people with disabilities and emergency preparedness.
Barton Cutter, who has cerebral palsy, remarks, "While we use the details of our personal lives as a platform to carry the story forward, the underlying message is universal. Our ability as human beings to persevere in the face of a challenge is one that is often overlooked in this day and age. At its core, this book is a reminder to all that they too have the capacity to overcome the challenges they face and experience life with a deeper sense of purpose."
Inter-ability couples have been getting more attention in recent years as the movement toward full inclusion for people with disabilities takes hold. Yet, few examples of successful inter-ability couples, where one member is impacted by disability, have offered an in-depth portrayal of the joys and challenges of their relationship that appeals to the general audiences. The Cutters hope to change that by sharing their own story. They dive into themes of intimacy, family influences and dynamics, creating external and internal support networks, direct support staff and the balance of care giving, losing faith in each other and themselves, and finding it again.
Ink in the Wheels sells for $15.97 and is available through Amazon and other leading online bookstores as well as their website www.inkinthewheels.com.
