Alyssa Howerton was born with special needs, but that didn’t stop her from living her life to the fullest. She touched the lives of her family and of everyone who came to know her. The obstacles she faced were unbelievable, yet she remained strong and steadfast through them all. Because she was paralyzed from the waist down, Alyssa was confined to a wheelchair. Even so, she was able to travel, meet new people, and live a full and happy life.

Lovingly told by her mother, Alyssa’s story chronicles the ups and downs of a life lived with special needs. She had many surgeries, but she faced each optimistically and with the understanding that life is very precious.

Why did one person have to go through so much physical pain? How did Alyssa stay so positive through all of the trials she faced? She had a real zest for life, and she looked forward to each day with endless excitement. Each day was bright and new—full of hope in spite of the fact that a life-threatening surgery was always just beyond the horizon. Alyssa was always planning her next adventure.

Our Butterfly Flies Free chronicles the full life of a daughter, granddaughter, and friend who was loved by all.
