Bring more balance, energy, and freedom to your life!

Hi! We're Mike & Jan, co-founders of SoaringFamilies.

Like you, we know all too well the fear and the stress of raising a child with a disability, and the tremendous amount of energy it takes to accomplish even the most basic of everyday tasks.

Our son, Ben, was born with complex disabilities, and was told would never walk, talk or go to school. But he ignored the experts and found a way to succeed.

He has taught us an incredible amount of things but the most important is to believe in a future that is bigger than the past! And that has made all the difference.

Let us share Ben's teachings with you!


"Mike and Jan are the real deal. They are living their message and are deeply committed to honouring every human. I have no doubt that SoaringFamilies will change people's lives in a profound way! Let them be your guide to find hope and better quality of life for your family!"

-- Nicole Keating,  Founder, The Art of Epic Wellness

Third Time Lucky: How Ben shows us the way

"Mrs. George, we have a problem. You have a very sick baby. He may not live the day!"

Those words would change the lives of Mike and Jan forever, but not in the way you would expect. Mike tells his family's story in Third Time Lucky: How Ben shows us the way, immersing the reader inside the disturbing world of a parent's suffering.

This story reinforces the fragility of human life and provides inspiration to anyone has been told, "...there's nothing anyone can do to help you..."

"Third Time Lucky is raw emotion. It will make you laugh and make you cry. An honest, compelling, sometimes painful, but mostly uplifting story that reflects the shared reality of families all over the world."

-- Connie Laurin-Bowie, Executive Director, Inclusion International
