Chicken Soup for the Soul - Raising Kids on the Spectrum
The perfect book for parents struggling with tough times and tough situations - there's 101 other parents (at least) that know where you're coming from and what you're going through. The stories are short and lift the heart - and some even brought me to tears - and it's perfect for that 5 minute break you may get each day while having your coffee, waiting for IEP meetings to start, sitting in a doctor and dentist's office or *gasp* when your child finally falls asleep. My favorite sections were the Snapshots and Hope and Expectations because, well as you already know, I am all about finding the positive, looking deeper, and finding the joy in various aspects of autism. Thanks to Shelby Janner for thinking of me and sending me this inspirational book. Shelby, you rock! I give it 5 stars!
