This book is a tremendous inspirationUser Review - Christianbook.com
This book would be a blessing to anyone who has a child with autism and an inspiration to parents who have children with disabilities. The author shares her heart and how she became a blessing because she saw her challenges as stepping stones instead of stumbling blocks.
A beautiful story of love conquering difficultyUser Review - Christianbook.com
Once I started to read this book I had a hard time to put it down. The story of Rex is filled with a mother's love that conquers the greatest difficulty, tenacity to fight for her son's life, hope that even the darkest situations can turn around in the light of God's love. You cannot help but fall in love with Rex as he struggles against enormous odds to find fulfillment in life with music. Rex is a savant who found his outlet at the piano. There are videos of him on YouTube that are absolutely amazing. His mom tells of the teaming up of Rex with another, older savant from England in a piano duet at a benefit show. You can watch the whole show online. This book reveals the struggles both the parents and children go through when dealing with autism along with a list of other diagnoses that Rex was given. When we see the outcome of his life, our struggles begin to seem rather small. If this young man can overcome so much, why can't I? Why can't you? We can, with the power of God and the power of love.
