Never give up on your child!
(PRWEB) April 13, 2005
Monica Moshenko, of Buffalo, New York is one of nearly 100 mothers from around the United States, and five foreign countries, who have been featured in the new Autism Enhancement Publishing release: Autism~Heartfelt Thoughts from Mothers.
With 1 out of every 166 children in the United States being diagnosed with autism (an average of 66 per day-a five fold increase from just five years ago), this disorder has reached epidemic proportions. News of an autism diagnosis can be devastating to a family and the challenges they face in raising a child with autism unfathomable.
The book's author, Judy Lynne, knows what it is like to raise a child with autism through all of the various trials, tribulations, troubles, and triumphs. She has a 21-year old daughter who was diagnosed with autism at age 4. Her concept for this book was to give the mothers a voice. She asked each mother to submit their thoughts regarding their biggest challenges, greatest blessings, and words of wisdom to other parents. She also asked for photographs of the mothers and their child (or children) with autism.
What she received from these mothers was true and honest heartfelt responses. When they talk about just how hard it is to raise a special needs child it appears as if the daily challenges are endless. Yet all of these mothers also express that their child is their greatest blessing, a unique being on this earth who they learn from and love deeply. And their words of wisdom to other parents shout, "Never give up on your child!" It is a book of hope, and book of love, and a book of courage.
Parents who have children with autism will identify with the challenges, share in the blessings, and gain strength from the words of wisdom presented in this book. Friends and family members of these parents will get a glimpse into the real world of autism and find a new appreciation for what parents of special needs children go through on a daily basis.
As the autism epidemic continues to grow worldwide it is imperative that society as a whole gain an awareness of this disorder. This book, and the mothers who are featured in it, greatly help in that effort.
