This thesis explores the concepts of resilience in families having children with intellectual disabilities. Key to this is the process of developing a reconstructed life narrative that includes a sense of purpose or meaning for the lives of the children with disabilities. The author explores his own reconstructed narrative for his two children who have intellectual disabilities and shows how that narrative has influenced decisions made regarding his children.
