Hello,
Your problem cannot yet be solved directly by NDSolve. (Boundary Value
Problem for Nonlinear ODE)
Some time ago a shooting method was proposed in this group which might
work for your example.

Nevertheless I would recommend to use either a collocation method
(COLNEW from netlib is extremely good) or Multiple Shooting strategy
(BOUNDSCO from Prof. Oberle, MULSHOT from Deuflhard's group in Berlin,
or anything else.) 
You need to code that in an ordinary computer language (usually
(preferably Fortran)

Good luck

Alois
