The shared recollections of these two courageous parents are all the more admirable because, with the twins, there was no sudden miracle cure, no leaping of developmental milestones owing to some new treatment. It was an inch-by-inch, hour-by-hour struggle with many discouragements ... The two have become speakers and advocates for parents and others concerned with the harsh realities of autism.
Although they were at first reluctant to share their story, Ana and Curt Warner have written a memoir that could reach readers on many levels ... Those interested in sports will appreciate learning more about star NFL athlete Curt; people of faith will appreciate the impact that faith has had on the couple’s lives; and, finally, people touched by autism will find relief in knowing that families in similar situations can not only survive but thrive ... a must-buy for every public library collection.
Ana and Curt are each given a say throughout the book. It gives the reader an understanding of how each one coped with their situation ... Ana and Curt's uplifting personal story is a must for parents who have a child in the autism spectrum or any other neurological condition. Theirs is a recipe for a solid marriage for all parents, even if their children are not mentally challenged.
Powerful ... both heart-wrenching and also uplifting ... Rather than delve into arguments over the causes of autism, the authors focus on awareness and the need for support ... A touching and at times traumatic family story, but always positive and told with love.
