    This is the true story of Emily Colson, a single mother who has faced life's toughest obstacles. This is also the story of her nineteen-year-old autistic son, Max, a young man who struggles to speak, who some professionals deemed a waste of time. But a young man with a gift. Journey with Emily through this unabridged audio download as she shows how Max unraveled the thinking of those who tried to teach him and help him, a lesson that the seemingly weak people can be more powerful than the strong.

    DIONNE MASSEY says: "Wonderful True Life Story"
    "Touching and Joyful View of Autism"
    Overall

    This book, written by Emily Colson, daughter of Chuck Colson, is an honest and inspiring look into a life consumed with raising an autistic son (Max) as a single parent. Emily shares the struggles candidly but you never lose the sense that she considers her autistic son and her life raising him as a gift from God. She writes in easy to read, enjoyable word pictures of snapshot moments that carry you along her life raising Max. I honestly both laughed and cried reading this book. As a parent of a child with Asperger's myself, many of the struggles were familiar and it caused me to seize each day with my child and remember to laugh and dance and find joy in each day.
